The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is delighted to present Confidence in the Future, curated collaboratively by BCA staff, Rebecca Pristoop and Arianna Reyes.

The exhibition, which was scheduled to open on March 18, 2020 at the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos, was cut short due to COVID-19. BCA has worked tirelessly to bring this show live with the support of participating artists, staff and curators.

In this exhibition, BCA continues to focus on paying homage to socially conscious artwork and to art that comes from artists who are actively engaged in creating a vision of the future and expanding our understanding of the role of resistance.

We will discuss how COVID-19 is affecting the ability to live a sustainable life in the Bronx, exploring individual and collective perspectives on life, art, and community in the borough now.

The program will feature artists Kim Dacres, Toisha Tucker, Charlie Liriano and Kathleen Greaney, along with Jessica Clemente, CEO, Nos Quedamos. To RSVP, please visit here.

About Bronx Council On The Arts

Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is dedicated to advancing cultural equity in Bronx. From creative placemaking and arts advocacy to the provision of services for artists and arts organizations, as well as programming for children and seniors, BCA was the first organization in Bronx to focus equally on supporting local artists, serving the community, and catalyzing relationships between the two.

Since its founding, BCA has focused on the work of underrepresented groups, especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. We provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year, and thanks to our granting programs, we are able to touch the lives of over thousands of audience members.
