The South Bronx Independent Artists Coalition joined forces with both local and international artists to present the first South Bronx Open Studio Tour in May, opening the doors to artist studios and galleries across Mott Haven and Port Morris.
This month, five local students from the Bronx Junior Photo League received Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, a prestigious national competition founded in 1923 by the Alliance for Artists and Writers and judged by a panel of renown visual and literary artists.
The show, which is broadcast live online and runs Monday through Friday from 4-6 p.m., covers music, sports, fashion, comedy, relationships and everything in between.
Disparate ingredients are part of Historical Amnesia, a collection of five artists’ work exploring historical trauma, marginalization and how those concepts are traced through the human body.
The idea for a center began when Sister Mary Ann came to Mott Haven to serve as a pastoral associate at St. Pius V in the mid-’80s. She provided counseling services for mothers and children, sensing a need for unity among the women.
