Culture: Bronx Stories @BronxMuseum




Friday, February 24, 2012, 6:30pm until 9:00pm
BRONX STORIES: I BX/BK
Join The Bronx Museum of the Arts for a special celebration of New York City's two greatest boroughs. Storytellers, poets, and baseball historians from Brooklyn and the Bronx explore the legendary rivalry and share their borough love stories. Performers will lead a special tour of the museum, sharing personal insights into selected artworks in the exhibitions Urban Archives: Emilio Sanchez in the Bronx and Juan Downey: The Invisible Architect.

Explore the connections between the two boroughs with Bronx storyteller Maria Aponte, Brooklyn storyteller Daisy Rosario, Bronx poet Pearl Quick, Brooklyn poet Tuan X, Yankees historian Tony Morante, and Brooklyn Dodgers historian Bob McGee. After the featured performers, rep your borough in our open forum.
