Bronx Artist Documentary Project
The Bronx Artist Documentary Project is a borough-wide collaborative endeavor involving 30 Bronx photographers documenting 80 Bronx visual artists at work in their studios or other Bronx venues. The BXADP contains 272 full-color pages with an introduction by artist and eight-time BCA BRIO winner Daniel Hauben, a forward by photographer Mike Kamber and a special dedication to the Bronx Council on the Arts. The book is available for purchase online.


Join us for an evening of special performances by two artists in the current exhibition “Her Art Will Be Cannibal”. Francheska Alcántara will perform ”Sobre Papel y Palabras” and Chloë Bass which will perform ”#sky #nofilter”



Writers: Be sure not to miss these exciting workshops and public discussions with local writers!


The Bronx Council on the Arts will host a series of book discussions, performances and special presentations throughout the Bronx for this year’s NEA Big Read selection "Ways of Going Home" by Alejandro Zambra, featuring performers, dancers, authors and poets. All events are open to the public. Books will be provided. 


We’ll be hosting a series of free, family-friendly craft workshops at the Huntington Free Library, NYPL, and Owen Dolen Center. We’ll have various artists ranging from photographers to paper sculptors, painters and other visual creatives. These artists will guide attendees through the hands-on process of creating arts, crafts and gifts.
