With only few days left until we blow the candles out and make our big birthday wish, BxArts Factory is hard at work fashioning what will be a fascinating night.
Ruddy Mejia a self taught Bronx artist, a place that for him, "provided the perfect blend of influences.. to translate his passion into pieces of artwork that document, question, and demand deep observation[,]" will be converting collaborative pieces that move art from frames that live on walls to work that can be worn in the form of hard-pressed buttons.
Rudy is currently the Art Specialist at Bronx House Inc. and has most recently participated in “Outside the Box,” an event curated by Lady K. Fever. Also joining Ruddy we will have Eric Mendoza who is a local Graphic Designer.
Supporters will walkout with a hand made piece and make our birthday wish come true; contributing to our fundraising goal for the evening.
Contributions collected this night will directly fund our 2017 free programs such as Nesting the Arts Project, among many others!
Purchase your tickets to our anniversary party today and help us celebrate.
Bringing Art to Every Household.
