The life of the late musician is told through 400 objects at David Bowie is, which opened March 2nd at Brooklyn Museum. It is a story of the musician who is all at once space oddity, androgyny icon, and founder of Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men. Ephemera and artifacts include Ziggy Stardust performance costumes, handwritten lyric sheets, photographs and videos from Bowie’s private collection. Because this is the last showing of the traveling exhibit that launched from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London five years ago, this is your chance to say goodbye. The exhibit ends July 15.
