Free Admission Saturday at The Bronx Museum of the Arts - see INFO below. Today an internationally-recognized cultural destination, The Bronx Museum of the Arts is committed to presenting new ideas and voices in a global context and making contemporary art a vital, relevant experience. For the past four decades, the Bronx Museum has presented hundreds of changing exhibitions featuring works by culturally diverse and under-represented artists from a spectrum of levels. Exhibitions have investigated themes of special interest to the Bronx community while exploring the interplay between contemporary art and popular culture. A permanent collection of over 2,000 artworks in all visual media preserves and documents artists who are not typically represented within traditional museum collections by showcasing work by artists of African, Asian, and Latin American ancestry, as well as artists for whom the Bronx has been critical to their development. The Museum provides direct support to artists through Artist in the Marketplace, which nurtures the work of 36 emerging artists each year and provides professional development seminars culminating in a multi-site biennial exhibition and catalogue. The Museums education department empowers students from grades K-12 by offering a variety of programs that inspire academic proficiency, visual literacy, and critical thinking. Through the Group Visits Program, students are exposed to the Museums works during single-session tours led by teaching artists. Through In-School Partnerships, Museum Educators work with school teachers to encourage scholastic excellence through the application of arts education techniques. In addition, the Museums Teen Council Program helps Bronx high-school students build applied arts and media skills as they create a variety of visual and text-based materials.
