Enjoy a live performance, Bollywood & Bomba, in Virginia Park in collaboration with the public artwork Daylighting by Lovie Pignata and Loving the Bronx. This event is free and great for all ages and is part of a series of weekly community building events in the park. There will also be a back to school giveaway of book bags with supplies.

Lovie Pignata's public art project activates a blacktop with a bold, painted replica of the nearby Bronx River, highlighting the importance of this waterway. She has also installed retired canoes from local non-profits, which are retrofitted with seating, chessboards, planters, and wayfinding signage. Daylighting will be on view through June 19, 2018.

This exhibition and event are made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
