That’s where I like to come in and tell both locals and visitors how they can broaden their knowledge and widen their travel experiences, here in New York City, and especially in the great borough of the Bronx.
Cut to my recent, first-time and solo visit to The Bronx Museum of the Arts. I underscore “solo” because there are few people in my sphere who can bear to visit a museum with me. Yes, I study each and every part of the exhibition and read every single placard to absorb all of the knowledge available.
Structurally, the exterior of the building is quite striking, with contemporary features characteristic of today’s New York, and yet, I found it to fit right in with its older neighborhood surroundings.
Entry is free and the interior space is rather intimate. Architecturally speaking, the high ceilings, geometric lines of the walls and large windows give the museum a large and open feel.
So, let's talk exhibits! The first, Manuel Mendive: Nature, Spirit & Body, sadly, closed this past Sunday (Nov. 4th), however, it was my desire to share my experience as I was not familiar with this Afro-Cuban artist or his works, prior to my visit, and thought it meaningful to feature.
Upcoming and newly opened exhibits include Rochell Reinstein: Image Of An Image, which just opened this week (November 7, 2018 to March 3, 2019) and Eddie Martinez: White Outs (November 14, 2018 to February 17, 2019).
