I went to the Museum because they were hosting a Martin Wong exhibit. 5 galleries of Martin's work including paintings large and small, ephemera, writings, photographic studies for paintings, etc. Truth to tell, I had never heard of the museum. It's easy to get to on the D train. The neighborhood is a bit dicey. My understanding is that the... More

A very nice place to hold community events and receptions. The various gallery and exhibit openings are an inexpensive way to enjoy an evening. Get on the mailing list!

The space is very nice and they had the Young Lords Exhibit up and it was an interesting story. Definitely worth checking out when in the Bronx.

Don't remember why it is free but it is. Very electric mix of shows, leaning toward the Hispanic culture. Enjoy the visit and then walk south down the Concourse for a Hispanic meal. There may be some street vendors around.

This is a wonderful museum. It's small but very beautiful. It has very interesting exhibits all the time. The programs offered are incredible! And there are many different kinds of programs. They have had an art competition and a Coquito tasting; a Flamenco christmas performance; a screening of "the weight of the nation", with a healthy version of lunch and... More

I had the pleasure of performing for Tantalizing Productions' "Art of Seduction" Masquerade erotic poetry showcase at the Bronx Museum which was just that--seductive. I can't tell you much about the actual museum, but the staff who tended to us in the lower level gallery we occupied during the event were spectacular. Whatever we asked for, they made sure it...

Just a few blocks from Yankee Stadium you will find the plucky Bronx Museum of the Arts. This is clearly a community space---when I visited there was a modeling call upstairs, a display of work from the collection, and a fascinating exhibition devoted to urbanism in Latin America. I was greeted warmly by the visitor services person and given everything... More
