The Bronx Museum of the Arts is a contemporary art museum, founded in 1971 to serve the culturally diverse populations of the Bronx and the greater New York metropolitan area.

It introduces visitors to the dynamic and challenging voices that shape the contemporary arts field of both today and tomorrow. The Museum is a member of the Cultural Institutions Group of the City of New York.

The Bronx Museum’s Education Department focuses on arts programs which empower students to express themselves, develop deep and career-enhancing skills, and see themselves as agents of change in their immediate communities and the world.
