Don't miss the closing reception of Poe is the Raven with Ray Felix, who presents a dark, yet whimsical tale based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe while residing in the Bronx.

Based on both fact and fiction, Poe is the Raven gives new light and insight on the secret life of Edgar Allan Poe. Inspired by his visits to Poe Cottage, Ray Felix became intrigued by spiritual ether surrounding the Poe property and the stories told by the long time tour guide of the Poe cottage. Felix's imprint "Bronx Heroes," takes stories from American History and transforms them into superheroes. Felix believes this allows Bronxites to appreciate everyday heroes from Bronx history and gain a greater understanding of their borough’s historically rich past.This is an opportunity to meet and greet the artist.
