As dedicated Coney Island enthusiasts, we couldn’t wait for Brooklyn Museum to open the doors to their latest show. Through the exhibitions Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, Forever Coney: Photographs from the Brooklyn Museum Collection, and Stephen Powers: Coney Island is Still Dreamland (To a Seagull), the museum is celebrating the People’s Playground spirit and showing some of the greatest Coney Island artwork ever exhibited. Coney‘s epic history is explored through photographs, paintings, sculpture, signage, film and artifacts like carousel animals and amusement games. Click through the snapshots below from some highlights from the incredible show.
The show runs through March 13, 2016. Make sure to check it out!
