Longwood Arts Project is the Bronx Council on the Arts’ contemporary visual art center supporting artists and their work, especially those from underrepresented groups such as women, the LGBT community and artists of color through exhibitions and public programming.
Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos, one of NYC’s oldest and longest running progressive alternative spaces, presents solo and group exhibitions in various media, and interdisciplinary projects that connect artists, communities and ideas within and beyond the Bronx.
Longwood's Project Room was created in 1991 to focus on Bronx and Bronx-based artists who present solo and experimental projects that aim to address issues of politics of identity, class, gender and urban and popular culture.
Longwood Arts Project receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NYS Council on the Arts, Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Lily Achincloss Foundation, Inc., Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture, NYC Council Members Fernando Cabrera, Andrew Cohen, Melissa Mark-Viverito, James Vacca, the Bronx Delegation, and BCA members. ccc
