Bronx River Art Center is located in a 16,000-sq. ft. four-story warehouse building bordering the picturesque Bronx River. It is a few blocks from the Bronx Zoo, in the West Farms Community of the South Central Bronx. The Center was founded in 1980 as part of the Bronx River Restoration project, and it was incorporated in 1987 as an independent non-profit, multi-arts organization dedicated to providing art and environmental programming for residents of the Bronx.
BRAC is a place where both emerging and established artists can create and exhibit their works. Our programs of exhibitions, classes, studio spaces and special events (music and dance performances, poetry readings, lectures and film screenings) offer students, artists and residents an opportunity to participate in and experience the arts within an urban setting. All programming is developed with an emphasis on the appreciation and integration of our unique resource - The Bronx River.
