The Brooklyn Artist’s Ball 2011 took place at The Brooklyn Museum on April 27th. It was chaired by museum trustee Stephanie Ingrassia, and co-hosted by actresses Sarah Jessica Parker and Liv Tyler. The traditional annual gala of the museum was given a twist this year in order to celebrate the creative and influence of Brooklyn’s artists. This year’s honorees were the artists Fred Tomaselli, Lorna Simpson, and Fred Wilson, as well as the retiring Brooklyn Museum Chair, Norman M. Feinberg. The Ball was followed by an after party in the Museum’s Great Hall, and featured live DJs.
