Last week I participated in the amazing party that Ivan Velez put together at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
It's the second one and I'm so glad I've been part of both of them. Models, live drawing, contests, DeejaySoul in the turntables, beer, wine, organic food, and lots of fun.
Can't wait for the next one!
The Bronx Latin American Biennial’s main objective is to create awareness in the arts by developing an international network with Latin American artists, as well as establish the opportunity to exhibit the best of their works. The event is to motivate the creative mind and challenge the contemporary global art community. These group exhibitions, will present art as an expression of the human condition and it reflects the notions of progress, civilizations, welfare, society and culture.
The Bronx Latin American Biennial is aimed to provide education and cultural information for every one, all the events are family oriented. It’s an event that celebrates not only the richness of the Latin American art but also the diversity of our community. This event offers the community the opportunity to access people from diverse cultural backgrounds, languages and ethnicity. Joint us for a Latin American Art celebration throughout the Bronx, showcasing panels of discussion, art exhibitions, urban installations and performances by artists from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Celebrate the Bronx's 100th anniversary with three pedestrian Sundays on the Grand Concourse between 165th and 167th Streets.
The center lanes will be closed to cars and open to a world of fun, with free music, activities and programs hosted by art/cultural, civic, health organizations and artists.
I will have a table with new stuff inside The Bronx Museum this next Sunday, August 3rd, and I will also be volunteering teaching an art workshop outside... so COME AND ENJOY!!!
