WHERE: The Brooklyn Museum, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

HOW MUCH: $12 which includes Museum general admission. Tickets are available at the visitor’s center or at www.museumtix.com. Seating is first-come, first-served. Museum Members receive free admission; to reserve, please call the Membership Hotline at (718) 501-6326 or email Membership.
