THE BRONX MUSEUM OF THE ARTS1040 GRAND CONCOURSE AT 165TH STREET BRONX, NEW YORK 10456
This exhibition presents a group of works by Emilio Sanchez from The Bronx Museum of the Arts Permanent Collection, together with related archival material and a special interpretive project by Bronx-based artist Laura Napier. All the works depict commercial buildings in the Hunts Point area of the South Bronx. With a colorful palette and rigorous architectural design, these works depict the bodegas and auto shops of the Bronx in an almost idyllic style that makes a stark contrast with preconceived views of the borough.
