ABOUT BRONX STORIES:
“Launched in December of 2011, Bronx Stories aims to challenge stereotypes about the Bronx and provide a platform for voices from the community while encouraging deeper engagement with the arts. Each event features 3-4 professional or amateur storytellers telling a story related to a specific artwork on view at the Museum. The most successful stories have been those drawn from the storyteller’s experience in the Bronx. The event culminates with an open-mic portion during which audience members perform their own short stories, poems, or songs.”
For National Poetry Month, come out and celebrate ART! “Bronx Stories” will leave you with a new perspective of living Bronx-style. Share YOUR STORY! Witness the grit – the beauty – the gifts – the culture – the community – and why it’s called “the boogie down Bronx” in the stories of the people from The X!
