Brooklyn Museum receives $50 million investment from City Hall

The Brooklyn Museum is getting a $50 million cash infusion thanks to Mayor Bill de Blasio, who announced the unprecedented capital investment that represents the largest in the institution’s history on Nov. 22. 

“We are the ultimate city of arts and culture, it’s who we are,” de Blasio said at the Brooklyn Museum on Nov. 22. “This place is not just a museum, it’s not just a place with a storied history, it’s a living, breathing hope for Brooklyn, and for the world — and so we have to support it.”
