This is a free event and open to the public.
This event is brought to you in partnership with the Bronx Music Heritage Center Laboratory
Each year the Bronx Museum, together with Transportation Alternatives, the NYC Department of Health, Bronx Health Reach and over 30 other organizations, has closed the middle lanes of the Grand Concourse to cars and opened it to a world of fun with free music, activities, and programs. In 2014 we welcomed 2,500 guests, and in 2015 over 7,500 guests joined in on the festivities.
This year Boogie on the Boulevard will be reallocating the center lanes of the historic Grand Concourse from 162nd Street to 170th Street for vibrant cultural, health, and active programming for FIVE Sundays; the last Sundays of the summer months: May 29, June 26, July 31, August 28, and September 25, from 12pm to 4pm.
This year The Bronx Museum of the Arts, together with BxArts Factory, the Andrew Freedman Home, BronxWorks, and other arts organizations and individual artists will host art-making activities, face painting, arts demonstrations, performances, and more on two blocks, from 165th to 167th Streets, on the Grand Concourse.
Would you like to be a participating artist? Do you have an artwork project that just needs a (large) public space? Are you a dancer that would like to do a dance class, an actor that would like to do a play for the community and maybe do an improvisation workshop? Do you knit, paint, sculpt, create books, sings, or performs? Our goal is to have a creative hub featuring artists making live art, teaching workshops, creating studio/gallery outdoor experiences, and engaging the community through creativity.
We are looking for artists to volunteer their time on one or more of the Sundays.
This is a great opportunity for you to participate and engage with the projected 10,000+ Bronx community members and visitors that will attend the event in 2016. If you are an artist that enjoys the interactions with community members, this is your chance!
