BAM President Karen Brooks Hopkins was inducted into the inaugural Crain’s New York Business Hall of Fame on Nov 10th at a ceremony at Cipriani, alongside Michael Bloomberg, Diane von Furstenberg, Kenneth Chenault, Henry Kravis, Terry Lundgren, Danny Meyer, Dick Parsons, Steve Ross, and Jonathan Tisch. She was introduced by Ford Foundation President Darren Walker, who said through Karen’s leadership BAM “joined the pantheon of the world’s great cultural centers in London, Paris, Berlin, and beyond.” In accepting the honor Karen celebrated the fact that Brooklyn’s Cultural District embraces the cultural diversity of New York City and that arts organizations feed the souls and minds of residents and tourists alike. And as these institutions endure for generations,  Karen called support for the arts “the best deal in town.”
