    You can’t head there in person but Brooklyn Museum is inviting everyone to join a virtual party with the kickoff of the online version of First Saturday.

    The free evening of art, performance and music, offered for more than two decades, will move online starting Saturday, April 4. Art lovers will be able to join in via livestream, Facebook Live or Zoom to take in a full evening of programming. The night begins at 5 p.m. with a hands-on art demonstrations from Brooklyn Educators (a supply list of basic items is provided so you can gather materials ahead of time). A teen variety show follows with spoken-word poetry and storytelling by the museum’s teen staff.

    The music kicks off at 7 p.m. with a French-Carribean funk, disco and soul blend from singer-producer Adeline, followed by a drag tribute to the age of disco from House of Bushwig and a set from DJ Amber Valentine to close out the night.

    All the details, including how to connect, can be found at the Brooklyn Museum’s Virtual First Saturday page online here.
