MTA Arts for Transit

Lehman College Art Gallery is pleased to present Bronx Bound, an exhibition featuring twenty-seven new MTA public art projects planned for train stations along the 2, 4, and 5 lines in the Bronx. These permanent, site-specific projects are being commissioned by the MTA’s Arts for Transit as part of their Capital Program to rehabilitate stations within the transit network. Artists are selected by a panel of arts professionals and community representatives organized by the Arts for Transit program through a competitive process. The exhibition includes drawings, studies, installation photographs, and related materials. Bronx Bound, organized by Susan Hoeltzel, has been made possible with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the JPMorgan Chase Foundation. This exhibition has been organized with the help of the MTA Arts for Transit program.

Artists include Candida Alvarez, Lisa Amowitz, Tomie Arai, Andrea Arroyo, Laura Battle, Amir Bey, Michele Brody, Dina Bursztyn, Naomi Campbell, Alfredo Ceibal, Noel Copeland, Béatrice Coron, George Crespo, Joseph D’Alesandro, Daniel Del Valle, Andrea Dezso, Nicky Enright, Josie Gonzalez Albright, Corinne Grondahl, Skowmon Hastanan, Daniel Hauben, Mario Muller, José Ortiz, Moses Ros, Juan Sánchez, Carol Sun, and Marina Tsesarskaya.

Works in this exhibition will be included as part of the gallery’s Web site, Public Art in the Bronx, that features over one hundred public projects, Bronx walking tours, lesson plans for teachers, neighborhood histories, maps, artist biographies, web resources, and bibliographies.
