We had an amazing year thanks to so many supporting artists and community members! We thought it would be great to remember 2015 with some of the best moments! So read up as we count down the #Bestof2015
10 - Our Launch Party! We had a blast at our launch event and here we are with the winner of our online contest! It was a time to remember and the beginning of a great year for BxArts Factory!
9 - Our next memory is from our art exhibition Innuendos. 10 Bronxites, that happened to be amazing women, presented their art work during this month long exhibition that included panels and performances. This photo was taken during our closing event at the Andrew Freedman Home!
8 - Our 1st Fundraising and 12x12 art exhibition at the Gun Hill Brewery was a blast! This was absolutely one of the best moments this year!
7 - Our second 12x12 fundraiser at the BronxArtSpace! We always love working with Linda at her gallery!
6 - Our Summer Mural Match with amazing artists KayLove and Giannina! It was great to engage so many children in art activities while these 2 ladies work on their murals, live!
5 - El Barrio Pinta came to the Bronx! We had a blast at the Bronx Beer Hall in Arthur Ave. Thanks to Junior and Gia for the fun night!
4 - Another awesome summer event, Art at the Bar! Artists painted live models and enjoyed cold beer at the Gun Hill Brewery!
3 - In August we were part of the amazing Boogie on the Boulevard! Grand Concourse was closed for pedestrian enjoyment! We had about 12 artists painting decks, live, as we turned the BxArts Factory block into an outdoor gallery and studio!
2- Film Screening of Umbrella House and Journey at the Lincoln Hospital!
1 - We were thrilled to work with WHEDco and BMHCLab in creating the murals on 163rd and Melrose! Here the amazing artists Ralph Serrano, Karen KayLove Pedrosa, Vanezza Cruz and Laura Alvarez.
Extra Moment: Even though we said 10 moments, we couldn't leave out our awesome anniversary event! Our Auction/Anniversary dinner was a great time with friends and supporters!
We at BxArts Factory would like to thank everyone that lend it a hand and resources to make this year happen. It is a blessing to say that we were able to survive our 1st year (hahahah) We know that you will help us cheer to many more, as we welcome 2016! Happy New Year to all!
