The fourth exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series presents the work of Bedford-Stuyvesant-based artist Heather Hart. Hart built a large-scale structure titled The Eastern Oracle: We Will Tear the Roof Off the Mother for display in the Museum's fifth-floor rotunda. She describes the work as "an independent rooftop, removed from its house, and dropped from the sky to live its own life in a new context. A rooftop can refer to home, stability, or shelter, but in this context, it is also an action of reclaiming power." The work makes reference to the Museum's ancient Egyptian and African collections and to the Jan Martense Schenck House, a two-room structure built in 1676 that is Brooklyn's second-oldest example of Dutch-American architecture, and the oldest architecture in the Museum's period room collection.

Venue Description: Open Wed., Fri.-Sun., 11am-6pm; Thurs., 11am-10pm; First Saturday of each month (except September), 5-11pm. $12; $8, students and seniors (62 & over). Under 19, free (as of 9/3/2014).
