ABOUT BRAC
The Bronx River Art Center (BRAC) is a 34-year-old community-based, multi-arts organization located in the heart of The Bronx at the major transportation hub of West Farms Square, three blocks south of the Bronx Zoo. Because of our unique location next to our namesake — the Bronx River — an important natural resource in the heart of the Bronx, we were one of the first interdisciplinary art and environmental studies organizations in the country to incorporate environmental concerns and urban design into our visual arts curriculum. In our recently restored, 18,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility we offer four interlocking programs: after-school and weekend visual arts classes for both youth and adults, a ground floor, 2,000 sq. ft. gallery featuring professionally curated contemporary art exhibitions, artist studios, a co-working space for emerging and mid-career creative entrepreneurs; and a multi-purpose event space featuring an array of performing arts and cultural events. BRAC meets the cultural needs and artistic opportunities of a multi-ethnic community in the south-central Bronx, as well as for the larger cultural community of New York City.

BRAC is conveniently located at a transportation hub one block east of the East Tremont/West Farms Square stop on the #s 2 and 5 subway lines. Our area is also accessed by six bus lines and three highways
