Join us now for a program of festivities as we celebrate what is most meaningful to BAM: our stalwart supporters and the unstoppable creativity of our artists. BAM Gala 2021 honors three powerhouse Brooklynites who have shared their talent and vision with BAM and the borough over the years: world-renowned actor and Brooklyn resident Sir Patrick Stewart; longtime BAM supporter and Brooklyn native Shelby White and the Leon Levy Foundation, whose generosity made the BAM Digital Archives possible; and choreographer and founder of Brooklyn-based dance company Urban Bush Women Jawole Willa Jo Zollar.

The festivities include music by Brooklyn-based Afrobeat band Antibalas and members of Urban Bush Women, dancing, awards, and the kickoff of the BAM Art Auction. Take part in the celebration from the comfort of your home. The pre-recorded performances, broadcast live from the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on June 10, are available to stream through Friday, June 18 at 10am.
