THE BRONX ARTIST DOCUMENTARY PROJECT

Idea

The Bronx Documentary Project is a huge undertaking by The Bronx Artists Collective. Several City Island artists, including Photographer Ron Terner, and artists Mary Colby, Reina Mia Brill and Marguearite Chadwick- Juner are participating in this outstanding borough-wide collaborative endeavor involving local photographers documenting visual artists at work in their studios or other borough venues.

The Bronx Artist Documentary Project is fostering connections between artists and photographers from all corners of the borough and from various styles, backgrounds and generations, cultivating opportunities for collaboration and greater communication within the artistic community at large.

The exhibition of photographs and the free special events, tours and discussions scheduled to complement the exhibition will encourage greater appreciation of and interaction between artists and the community. The special outdoor "Garden of Artists" participatory event on Saturday September 27th will allow visitors to observe the creation of art firsthand and to interact with the artists as they work.

A total of one hundred individuals are participating in this project, in celebration of this year's Bronx County Centennial. Their goal is to create greater awareness of the visual artists who work in the Bronx and who enrich the cultural fabric of the borough with their art.

A public exhibition of the photographs will be on view at the Andrew Freedman Home, 1125 Grand Concourse, from September 10th thru October 8th, 2014, with an opening reception on Saturday September 13th.

City Island Images will be posting additional community events and activities, which are being planned to augment this grand exhibition.
