The Bronx River Art Center is excited to announce our upcoming series of Saturday Art Workshops, presented as part of our exhibition, "Work In Progress", which will be a Pop-Up exhibition opening at the newly transformed Rex Hall on Friday, October 28th.
As we approach the scheduled completion of our renovated building, BRAC is popping up once again at another venue in our Bronx community. Rex Hall, located on E. 187th ST near Arthur Ave, is being envisioned as a new cultural hub for Bronx residents, according to The Belmont Society of Arts & Culture. The hall boasts 4,000 square feet of space and original period detailing, with newly painted copper ceiling and dramatic lighting from classic chandeliers.
Our aim is to inspire local residents, particularly Bronx youth, by connecting them to artists at work. On Saturday afternoons during the run of the exhibition, we will be hosting community art workshops in the space, taught be talented local artists and educators.
