“Simply put, there would be no BAM without Harvey.”
—Steve Reich

As BAM President and Executive Producer, Harvey Lichtenstein scanned the globe on behalf of BAM audiences for 32 years, introducing the most exciting new work to Brooklyn, New York City, and the United States. Harvey passed away in February 2017, but his tremendous legacy lives on. It lives on in spaces like the beloved theater that now bears his name. And it lives on in enduring programs like DanceAfrica and the Next Wave Festival, which transformed BAM and the greater cultural landscape, giving a new home to visionary artists like Pina Bausch, Baba Chuck Davis, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Merce Cunningham, and so many more.

Carrying that legacy forward, BAM and the Lichtenstein family are proud to launch the BAM Harvey Fund, which is dedicated to preserving the present and future vitality of Brooklyn’s home for adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas. Honor Harvey’s visionary leadership by making a charitable contribution today. Your support ensures that daring contemporary work continues to flourish at the institution he loved so much.
