News: Brooklyn Museum Costumes go to Met, Costume Inst.

23,500 costume objects will move from the Brooklyn Museum to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Costume Institute. It will be known as the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

What’s the most exciting for the public is “that under the deal the Brooklyn Museum would be able to include the collection in shows, and that both museums planned to present exhibitions in 2010 focusing on different portions of the combined collections.”

The possibility of additional jobs opening up at the MET, CI to handle this transfer, which is to take effect in January, is not lost on me – but any hiring may have already been done.
