Pharrell Williams will host the Yellow Ball, which will take place on Monday, September 10, at the Brooklyn Museum. The event will benefit the Young Audiences Arts for Learning, the nation’s largest arts-in-education network whose work strives to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts. In a statement Williams shared that it was his early educators that inspired him to dabble in music. “Music and the arts have been part of my life since birth, but it was my teachers, Mr. Warren, Mrs. Warren and Mr. Sharps, who exposed me to so many different kinds of music, that it expanded my mind and my imagination. I would not be where I am today without music and arts education in my school as a youth.” The event will feature musical performances by Missy Elliott, A$AP Ferg, DJ Stretch Armstrong, and more, as well as a multi-room art experience from artist Daniel Arsham.
