Linda Cunningham: South Bronx Waterfront Sagas
For the Bronx Museum’s lobby wall, Cunningham’s mural combines unexpected materials with photo-transferred images. These images are layered with acrylic and pastel, revealing deteriorating remains of abandoned South Bronx waterfront areas, punctuated by multiple power transfer stations, railroads, and refuse transfer stations. The torn edges of bifurcated sheets of canvas and shards of information provide a glimpse of the South Bronx’s complex history as a borough with industrial landscapes and greenery.
Linda Cunningham South Bronx Waterfront Sagas is made possible in part by the support of the Bronx Council on the Arts’ Bronx Recognizes its Own (BRIO Award) stipend.

"FEAR“ - Fear/Fearless: 80's Then and Now, Seven Sides
A current theme and trend in Politics, the News, Experiencing an Airplane Ride and even Weather Reports. This Fear Represses and makes us targets of both the rain and bullets. The 80's blossomed several above-culture movements, sub-culture seems to be a misnomer. Combining Fear with Fearlessness both Inline Skating on the Edge and Skate Boarding off a Ramp artists are well calculated risk takers pushing the edge of new sports.
