At Work in a Bronx That Brims With Creativity

“While the Bronx may not be Chelsea or Williamsburg,” notes The New York Times, “it has attracted dozens of visual artists, photographers and performers in recent years with relatively affordable rents and an abundance of industrial buildings that can be pressed into use as studios”:

“Many community leaders say that the influx has reinvigorated struggling neighborhoods with newcomers who promote cultural activities, and renewed focus on the arts in a borough that has been home to Milton Glaser, Larry Rivers and Daniel Libeskind, among others.

"A new photography exhibit at the Andrew Freedman Home on the Grand Concourse highlights this growing Bronx arts community. Called “The Bronx Artist Documentary Project,” the exhibit, which runs through Oct. 8, features the work of 30 photographers who recorded 80 artists as they engaged in their creative process over the past year.
