Bronx Speaks: Making Place is the latest exhibit presented by the Bronx Arts Alliance (BxAA) in concert with New York Armory Arts Week. It highlights the cultural diversity of artwork created and exhibited within the Bronx featuring US and International Artists from 20+ Bronx arts organizations as selected by a curatorial committee.
A key focus of the exhibit is to document the uniqueness of this environment and to share creative visions that highlight these surroundings.
The exhibit will run from March 4-8 at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and will be installed by independent curator Sarah Corona.
