Proceeds from the event, which is organized by the Brooklyn Museum's Community Committee, a volunteer organization, will benefit the many artistic and cultural programs offered by the Brooklyn Museum and its Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

The program will begin at 11 a.m. with an introduction by Museum Director Arnold Lehman, followed by a conversation between Kara Walker and Catherine Morris, Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The program will conclude with the presentation of the 2010 Women in the Arts Award to Ms. Walker. A reception and luncheon in the Museum's Beaux-Arts Court will follow from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Walker was born in Stockton, California, and grew up in Atlanta. She graduated from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991 and received her M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994.

She has had other recent solo exhibitions at CAC Málaga, Centro de Art Contemporáneo de Málaga, Spain, and MDD (Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens) in Duerle, Belgium, both in 2008. She also participated in the fifty-second Venice Bienalle in 2007 and was the United States representative at the twenty-fifth International São Paulo Biennial in Brazil in 2002.

Walker has been the recipient of many awards, including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Achievement Award in 1997, the Deutsche Bank Prize in 2000, and the United States Artists Eileen Harris Norton Fellowship in 2008.
