Thanks to the organization No Longer Empty (NLE), a grand building on the Grand Concourse is playing host to an art exhibit that presents the economic and social history of the Andrew Freedman Home, contrasted against the Bronx as it is today. Years ago, the Andrew Freedman Home served as a posh residence for wealthy elderly people who lost their fortune.
Selected artists will feature work that reflect their interpretation of themes such as aging, memory, poverty and others that relate to the original home and the Bronx today.
No Longer Empty widens the audience for contemporary art by presenting high-caliber site-specific public art exhibitions in the heart of communities.
This spring, BronxNet will work with No Longer Empty to provide video production training for teenagers participating in NLE’s Docent Program, a program that focuses on media and visual literacy. BronxNet is also working with NLE to schedule video production classes for adults that will be conducted on-site at the Andrew Freedman Home.
