The Poe PArk Visitor Center hosts the Bronx Meets East Africa closing reception and artist discussion, with curator, Sika Foyer.
The Bronx Meets East Africa is an exhibition showcasing East African artists and their emerging relationships to the Bronx community. The artwork featured will focus on the following themes: the drive to feed one’s family, to provide a decent shelter for self and loved ones, to belong, and to leave a legacy.
The event intends to showcase the similarities and differences of Ugandans’ daily life compared to that of an American displaced in the Bronx. Of the 3.2 million foreign born residing in NYC, the Bronx is home to the largest concentration of African born immigrants compared to other boroughs.
