Brooklyn Museum's Artist Ball

Dress: BHLDN | Leather Jacket: Maje

Anyone who knows me, can attest to how I attribute many things in my life to growing up with Russian immigrant parents, Like...my unconditional love for high heels, sour cream, beets and the ballet. But more than anything, it's my love and appreciation for the arts. Immigrating to another country comes with many challenges, ones I'll never fully understand, but no matter what my parents life or financial situation was, I was constantly being dragged to the theater, the ballet and every museum the city had to offer. I say dragged because as a 7 year old little girl, that's what it  felt like, but it's only as a young adult when I realized what an incredibly positive impact that had on my life. Surrounding yourself, or your children, around art is one of the greatest gifts in life.

So of course, I'm thrilled to be serving on the Dance Party Committee for Brooklyn Museum's Annual Artists Ball. On April 16th, I'll be co-hosting (along with KeikoBobby and with Keith by my side), the dance party from 10PM-1AM, and you're invited! Proceeds from the Brooklyn Artists Ball support the education programs and exhibitions of the Brooklyn Museum. I hope you're able to join what's going to be a fun night for a wonderful cause! Arts + a dance party? I mean.... doesn't get better than that. You can buy your tickets here and please let me know if you're able to come. Would love to meet you!

  38. I love your outfit so much. Perfect combination of edgy and feminine and especially love the neutral colors.

    My parents always stressed traveling and the arts as well. As a kid, I wasn't always thrilled about it, but now I am so happy that they brought me to all of those events. I was an art major in college and still dance and make pottery today. I hope to get back into painting soon as well.

    Just got back from a trip to London and saw some great museums. Even though I had been before, I never get sick of browsing through art museums! Check out my latest post for photos from my London trip:).

    P.S. That sounds like a great event! I am going to try to get my husband to go with me;).

  41. Madi Brown believes that Brooklyn Blonde's attire is a work of ART. A leather-chiffon-bold-lip masterpiece. Hope you and your guy dance the night away.
