Longwood Arts Project


Exhibition Runs: June 19th – August 16th (Free Admission)

BCA and En Foco are proud to present Subject ≠ Object, the highly anticipated 2019 En Foco Fellowship Group Exhibition! The work of the ten winners will be on display, depicting works ranging from the Punk scene in Havana, Cuba, to the LGBTQ+ scene at Jacob Riis Park. Styles include diptychs, collages, photographic scrolls, and more. Says curator Alexander Campos, “More than just studies in portraiture and landscape photography, these artists use photography to shed light on race, identity, sexuality, feminism, and politics.”


Youth Engagement Program

This spring, the Bronx Council on the Arts launched its much-awaited Youth Arts Engagement Program at Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos. This initiative seeks to increase Bronx youth’s awareness of local arts while encouraging youth to embark on a life of ongoing culture engagement they can relate to. Youth benefit from free, age-appropriate art activities that foster critical thinking, interviewing and public speaking skills.


Longwood Arts Project is the contemporary art program of the Bronx Council on the Arts. The Arts Project operates under the mission to support artists and their work, especially emerging artists and those from under-represented and under-resourced communities within the Bronx. Longwood Arts Project hosts exhibits and public programs that provide opportunities for free and open dialogue on arts and culture.


Initiated by the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) in 1981, Longwood Arts Project was founded in the former Public School 39 at 986 Longwood Avenue in the Bronx. The school was closed due to attrition of school-age children in the district at that time when the area was devastated physically and economically. Community leaders turned the unfortunate closure into an opportunity to help stabilize the neighborhood by developing it into a multi-service building for city agencies and non-profit organizations as its tenants.
