Bronx Stories: Native American Edition in Honor of Native American Day


Join us for an evening of storytelling, poetry, and music inspired by the Bronx and works of art on view.  Make your voice heard in our open mic. Featuring Dennis Redmoon Darkeem, Candace Tarpley, and Charles Whalen.  Produced in collaboration with storyteller, poet and Bronx Museum Community Advisory Council member Bobby Gonzalez.

 

Launched in December of 2011, Bronx Stories aims to challenge stereotypes about the Bronx and provide a platform for voices from the community while encouraging deeper engagement with the arts.  Each event features 3-4 professional or amateur storytellers telling a story related to a specific artwork on view at the Museum.  The most successful stories have been those drawn from the storyteller's experience in the Bronx.  The event culminates with an open-mic portion during which audience members perform their own short stories, poems, or songs.

 

Location: 2nd Floor North Wing and Galleries

 

Bronx Stories are made possible with support from The David Rockefeller Fund.  Beer has been lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
