Those of us who are not New Yorkers probably associate the Brooklyn Museum (BMA) with modern art from the controversial exhibition, SENSATION: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection, October 1999-January 2000. But the museum's permanent collection includes Egyptian, Greek and Roman, and Ancient Middle Eastern Art; American and European paintings and sculpture from the 14th century to the present; as well as decorative arts, prints, costumes and textiles, and photography. The BMA Web site provides overviews and selected images from these collections, descriptions of current and upcoming shows, and research resources, such as the Learning Center, a multimedia center for students, teachers, and families providing art books, exhibition catalogues, and computers with internet access for art research (available by appointment), and the BMA Libraries and Archives. Much of the information on the BMA Web site is helpful for planning in-person visits to the museum. [DS]
