The Bronx was not known for the arts for several decades. However, this has been changing in the past years, and since several years the wonderful Bronx Museum of the Arts on the Grand Concourse has been the symbol of this renaissance.
On March 26, the Museum hosted an event to launch a new website, Bronx200, which showcases 200 Bronx-based artists. The Bronx is experiencing a revival, with both native Bronx artists and those who have been moving in and establishing studios. John “Crash” Matos, who founded the Wall Works New York gallery in Mott Haven, was the guest speaker at the event.
The Museum building is very contemporary and easy to navigate, a great place to visit at any time.
