People who have saved this event:



The Bronx Museum is a site of creative making and self-expression. The Making Room exhibition documents, celebrates, and extends that role—presenting artworks from participants in the Museum’s education programs along with works from the permanent collection and interactive elements.

Specifically, this exhibition highlights work by participants in Lifelong Studio, an art-making program for adults 55 and older, as well as by participants in Teen Council, a paid afterschool art program for high schoolers. The artworks produced by participants in these programs are rooted in their varied life experiences and explore personal narratives, memories, and modes of self-expression—within the context of the Museum.

The exhibition interpretive materials for Making Room are produced collaboratively by Bronx Museum Education Staff Members with participants in Lifelong Studio and Teen Council.

The exhibition is curated by Patrick Rowe, Director of Education and Public Engagement, and Nell Klugman, Associate Director of Education and Public Engagement.
