Seeing Bronx Museum Exhibits Wherever You Are

31 Mar

Museums, galleries, theatres, schools, concert halls … they all might be technically closed but that doesn’t mean they can’t share their art and creativity. So many have! Here’s a Bronx Museum of the Arts show I haven’t gotten to see close up yet, but am grateful for its visual video existence. Take a look:

 

P.S. The Bronx Museum of the Arts is sharing much of its work online via videos like above.

Don’t Miss Martin Wong Exhibit at Bronx Museum of the Arts

15 Jan

I forget why I headed into the Bronx Museum of the Arts seven weeks ago. But when I got there and ended up at the opening for a media tour (yup, I was lucky!) of the Martin Wong exhibit I felt like I was meant to be there. Among what I’ve seen at the museum, which is not nearly sufficient for a Bronxite former newspaper editor who has lived in the borough for 24 years, Wong’s work is the most significant. It’s the art of a proud, gay, artisitic urbanite (he spent some time here but was more of San Franciscan) obsessed with … well … his art and the influence of the diverse, difficult and delectable world around him. Here are a few photos I took of paintings that grabbed me, but they insufficiently document my experience there, which is why you should go! The exhibit closes on Feb. 14.
