Public and Community Engagement Programs at The Bronx Museum of the Arts are made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Mertz Gilmore Foundation,  and The New York Community Trust. Beer has been provided by Bronx Brewery.



ARTFUL HEALTH is a series of programs presented by the Bronx Museum focused on an array of health issues of extreme relevance to the Bronx community. Considering the prevalence of health conditions such as asthma, obesity, diabetes, sexually transmitted infections, and mental illness in the borough, we hope to provide safe, engaging, and dynamic public spaces for South Bronx residents to learn more about these issues, gain access to health resources, and share their experiences through diverse art forms to which they may not otherwise have access.
