I am delighted to share the news that I am the recipient of a 2019 Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) Community Arts grant, which will help fund my upcoming exhibition – Connecting People, Strengthening Communities: The Harlem River Bridges – at the New York Public Library’s Morris Park branch this summer. This is my second photography grant to date. The award celebration will take place Tuesday evening at the Longwood Art Gallery at Hostos in the Bronx.
A very interesting New York Times article titled “The Bronx Is Great, Thonx” that explores the recent development boom in the Bronx and the concerns among many in the borough about gentrification was published yesterday. Definitely a worthy read!
