Spike Lee: Creative Sources

December 04, 20231 min read

New York is home to some fabulous filmmakers, and one of the best? Spike Lee.


The Brooklyn Museum agrees, and has organized an exhibit entitled Spike Lee: Creative Sources, showcasing of more than 450 works and items from Lee's personal collection. Black history and culture, Brooklyn, sports (we all know how much he loves the New York Knicks!), music, cinema history, family and politics will all be explored through artworks by prominent Black American artists such as Kehinde Wiley, Deborah Roberts and Michael Ray Charles.


Movie posters, historical photographs, album covers and sports memorabilia will all be on hand. Along with musical instruments (Prince's guitar!) and set dressing and props pulled directly from some of Spike's most beloved films.


Lee grew up in Brooklyn, so the museum is the perfect space to celebrate him. The exhibit will be on view Wednesday through Sunday from 11 AM to 6 PM through February 4th. Tickets are $25 for adults, $17 for seniors, folks with disabilities and students (13 and above with valid ID), and $10 for kids 4-12.
