Something Extra: Tour and Workshop at The Bronx Museum of Art

Throughout the last 5 years, The Bronx Museum of Art has been very good to the students at my school. They have given us many guided tours and workshops without the hefty price tag many other institutions require. The last two years we have been led through the museum by Ivan and Fatima, two exceptional guides. Last week I took 4 classes, which were separated into two groups. We were brought throughout the current exhibition which hosts two contemporary artists, Paulo Brusky and Tony Feher. Both of the artist's have amazing work, but the opportunity for the students to stop and interpret the meanings are priceless. They began with an introduction of "What is art, What is it good for?" led by Ivan. This was actually a question posed by Brusky during one of his performance pieces. The students had an opportunity to make a mixed media collage after the tour, which always makes them happy to come home with a prize! Enjoy the pictures and please take some time to visit this great museum, whether in person or online! Mac
