The Bronx River Art Center invites the community to come out to Starlight Park for the opening of the outdoor exhibition River Rising/Sube el Rio: An Exposition of Science, Art and Technology. BRAC will present eight large-scale public art sculptures in the newly renovated Starlight Park that the community will be able to interact with and enjoy as modern pavillions. The sculptures artistically recreate the 1918 Bronx International Exposition of Science, Arts and Industries.

This fun weekend of parades, music, dancing, live performance, and more recreation will reimagine the vibrant outdoor space of  the 1918 Fair’s art and business focus and celebrate the rejuvenated Bronx River and redesigned Starlight Park .
