DESCRIPTION

The flagship cultural institution of the Bronx,  founded in 1971, The Bronx Museum of the Arts  focuses on 20th-century and contemporary art,  while serving the culturally diverse populations of  the Bronx and the greater New York metropolitan  area. The museum's home on the Grand Concourse is a distinctive contemporary landmark  designed by the internationally-renowned firm Arquitectonica.

The Bronx Museum of the Arts maintains a  permanent collection of 20th and 21st-century  works by artists of African, Asian, and Latin  American ancestry. Additionally, the Museum  collects works by artists for whom the Bronx has  been critical to their artistic practice and development. The Museum's educational offerings spring  from these central programs with outreach to children and families as well as adult audiences.
