Along with great exhibitions like “Keith Haring 1978-1982,” a new series called Thursdays @ 7 is yet another reason to visit the Brooklyn Museum this month, which will be open every Thursday evening until 10 p.m. They’ve lined up a ton of exciting programs in April, including free gallery tours and fascinating lectures with scholars and pop culture icons, concerts, and film screenings.
