Spike Lee is being honored with an exhibition at Brooklyn Museum exploring his extraordinary entertainment legacy.
Titled “Spike Lee: Creative Sources,” the exhibition opened on October 7. It offers visitors an intimate glimpse into the sources that have driven Lee’s creative process.
It features an immersive display of over 400 items sourced from Lee’s personal collection, reports WABC-TV. The artifacts include, musical instruments, movie memorabilia, and art.
“It’s stuff that tells the stories of these movies,” he told WABC-TV. “It’s my family.”
“Artworks by prominent Black American artists, including Kehinde Wiley, Deborah Roberts, and Michael Ray Charles, are displayed alongside instruments once owned by legendary musicians, as well as historical photographs, sports and movie memorabilia, and more,” details the exhibition site. “Together they reveal the connections among the people, places, and ideas that have fueled Lee’s incisive storytelling.”
There’s even a room dedicated room to Lee’s beloved New York Knicks.
The exhibition will be open at the Brooklyn Museum from Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is scheduled to run through February 4, 2024.
