Image of the Week
From February 16 till May 8, 2015, you have an opportunity to stop by the Brooklyn Collection and take a look at a selection of images and artifacts from the Gertrude Hoffman collection. The exhibition features the personal papers, photographs and scrapbooks of the early 20th century vaudeville dancer and choreographer Gertrude Hoffman. Admitedly, Hoffman was not a Brooklyn native, but she performed on many Brooklyn stages. In ballrooms, dance-halls and night-clubs Hoffman shocked audiences with her scant costumes and suggestive dances.
