Only one floor was open - there was a show which was well laid out but such a big museum is a waste - much more could be done with it -
The show on display was not that interesting

The Bronx Museum Of The Arts is an amazing cultural institution that showcases the fabulous creativity and world renowned works of art developed by America’s contemporary artists.

In February of 2022 and in celebration of Happy Valentine’s, I brought myself and my wife for a visit and self guided tour of the Bronx Museum Of The Arts.

We both very much enjoyed the numerous art and exhibitions that were created by African-American & Latin American artists.

Our favorite work of art was the “Protest & Counter-Protest, developed by Jesse Kreuzer which not only depicts civil unrest, but beautifully illustrates themes of exclusion and oppression as well as democracy and justice.

If you are searching and looking to view contemporary art that explores themes of acceptance, conflict, diversity, sexuality, and inclusion then you must definitely take the time to visit the Bronx Museum Of The Arts!!!

It is not a large museum, but there were some nice contemporary exhibits. On prior trips, I was in the Bronx when it was closed (Mon/Tues). It's free with a timed ticket, but the place was so empty that another visitor got in by making a reservation at the front desk.

It's a hidden gem, a good place to visit and check out real cultural pieces. Take some time to explore and you can end up spending 2-3 hours here.

I went to the Bronx Museum of the Arts right before a football game that I was attending at Yankee Stadium and had about an hour to visit. It was a really nice little museum.

I attended to the "Street Arts" exhibition on the street art on the subway cars from the 1970's and 80's before the structure of the cars changed. It was really interesting how the art of that time coincided with the rise of Hip-Hop, It was just that time when the City was falling apart and this type of art dominated the streets. It was also a time of white flight and the fall of places like the Bronx. This type of art was the expression of the times and somewhat disappeared when the Subway System changed the type of cars on the tracks and the graffiti could be washed off.

The exhibit captures those times and shows an era when it dominated not just the cars but the sides of buildings and playgrounds. It was an interesting expression.

Don't miss the exhibition. It is an excuse to visit the Bronx.

In nice area of the Bronx, close to subway station, we visited "Life and times of Alvin Baltrop", documenting his life in the navy, in the streets, his relation to men. This Bronx-born man - next to various jobs - made photos with power of speach. The exhibition contains original prints, often small size, but most impressive. Next, there was Henry Chalfort, who specialized in street-art. At the exhibition "Art vs Transit, 1977-1987, many photos of street-art, in particular trains that were painted extensively with grafitti, can be admired. In the end, authorities cleaned all trains, and the photos reached archival value. The neighbourhood is fit for exploration with your own camera.

We loved the show about graffiti and Henry Chalant. What an excellent setup - loved the combination of music of the time, the moving images and sounds of the trains (oh how I remember!) and the journals, poems of artist, the photos. Also wonderful video showing the original artists all grown up now and reflecting on their experiences. Top notch show and a wonderful community resource. And free! Amazing.
