Bronx Terminal Market, in collaboration with The Bronx Museum of the Arts, will showcase a new community mural inspired by scenic outdoor locations in the Bronx.
Located on the pedestrian bridge off of River Avenue and 151st Street, The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market is part of a greater initiative to integrate public art into the shopping center’s community space. From a grandiose 20 x 40 feet landscape, the mural will feature the High Bridge, Ferry Point Park, New York Botanical Garden, and Joyce Kilmer Park. The mural imagery is depicted through a gradient color palette based on photographs and sketches of the Bronx by artist Lindsey Warren, alumni of the Bronx Museum's emerging artist program, Artist in the Marketplace (AIM).
“The Bronx Museum of the Arts is delighted to collaborate with the historical site, Bronx Terminal Market, on this outdoor mural project alongside artist in the Marketplace (AIM) alum Lindsey Warren. In addition to creating a platform for an emerging artist, The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market celebrates the history and beauty of the borough with the local community through the arts.” said Holly Block, Executive Director of The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
“At Bronx Terminal Market, we pride ourselves in creating a diverse array of programming to serve our community. It has been a rewarding process to work directly with The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the artist, Lindsey Warren, to develop her vision into a public art piece that the community can enjoy," said Ed Hilla, Bronx Terminal Market Senior General Manager.
