Professor Scott has chosen works from five of his past students – most of whom came to his class without previous formal instruction (some have been prominent graffiti artists) but have managed to powerfully convey their mostly South Bronx-based observations and perspectives through a variety of painting techniques.

Longwood Arts Project is the contemporary art center of the Bronx Council on the Arts with the mission to support artists and their work, especially emerging artists and those from under-represented groups such as people of color and women. Longwood Arts Project hosts exhibits and programs such as Digital Matrix and public programs that provide opportunities for free and open dialogue on arts and culture.

Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos presents solo and group exhibitions of art produced in various media and through interdisciplinary practices 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.
