People V Space is a collage of urban landscapes and portraits inspired by the work of Romare Bearden. Cityscapes include vignettes of iconic neighborhoods, buildings, monuments, and intersections as a tribute to the South Bronx. The portraits in the collage reflect the silhouettes of a crowded train car and include prominent personalities, or community heroes, from the South Bronx. No matter how small or large their impact, buildings and people highlight what makes the South Bronx special and provide residents with an opportunity to see themselves and their communities reflected through art.
Every artist needs to take part in events to further their career. Participating in art events gives artists an opportunity to add to their exhibition history, gain public exposure, be seen by art lovers, access critiques from renowned critics, collaborate with other artists and curators, and access press in popular art magazines. The City Island Nautical Museum recently chose Bronx-based visual artist Liz Alderman to launch its new initiative to exhibit contemporary art in its iconic historic building located at 190 Fordham Street in the Bronx, New York. This is just one example of the many talented creators, artisans and small businesses living and creating in New York City and beyond.
The Bronx Council on the Arts is a pioneer in promoting cultural equity and encourages the development of a wide range of artists and arts organizations. The Affordable Art Fair is another great event for artists to attend. It began in London in October 1999 and has since grown to include 10 cities around the world. Jim Hodges recently created Craig's Closet for the ongoing public art program at the AIDS Memorial in New York City.

We celebrate LIVING LEGEND OF THE BRONX, Jose Rivera for his participation in the Afro-Puerto Rican music scene here in New York City, but also for supporting the culture of the little houses in the Bronx.

Future Fair Chelsea Industrial 535 W 28th Street, New York, NY 10001 TBD 2024 is another great event for artists to attend.
