Home is a familiar place where you can find comfort in your surroundings. During the quarantine home has also become a space to learn, grow, build and rest.

Each of the artworks we selected depicts our cultures and community as we see them. By showing the perspectives of the less represented lives of the people of New York we are centering the positive aspects of our city: our home.

This exhibit was curated by the Bronx Museum’s Teen Council in the winter of 2020-21 and features works from the Museum’s permanent collection.

On view between February 10 and April 11, 2021.

Teen Council is made possible, in part, by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, LeRoy Neiman and Janet Byrne Neiman Foundation, and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. Education and Community Programs are generously supported by Con Edison, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, Francena Harrison Foundation, The Hearst Foundations, New York Yankees Foundation, O’Grady Foundation, William Talbott Hillman Foundation, and New York City Council Member Vanessa L. Gibson, Council Member Diana Ayala, and Council Member Ruben Diaz, Sr.
