brooklynmuseum My final question... @marilynminter in your mind is there any relationship, conceptual or otherwise, between the imagery in the film #Smash and the imagery in your new book "Plush" (which I'm sure we can't post on Instagram)? - @small.lisa 17h

brooklynmuseum #ChitraGanesh's monumental mural invites visitors to take in an expansive composition featuring three female avatars that cross time and space, and then closely examine the nuanced choices that individuate each figure. Come see them for yourself, "Chitra Ganesh: Eyes of Time" opens today in the Herstory Gallery. 6d

brooklynmuseum #KillerHeels explores the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in the popular imagination. Many of the shoes featured in the exhibition were worn by a variety of celebrities, including the 'Mother Monster,’ herself. Step into #KillerHeels yet? There's still time to go gaga over a pair worn by @ladygaga | #GIF by @yomeryl 6d
