Bronx museum hosts artisan market

Posted: Updated:

The Bronx Museum of the Arts hosted an artisan market Saturday, supporting local artists and featuring handmade goods, demonstrations and performances.

"They get to engage with the community,” responded Ayesha Akhtar, a community engagement and marketing associate for the museum, when asked why community events are important for local artists. “There aren’t that many opportunities for artists who are from the Bronx to sell [their art.]"

News 12 The Bronx is told 10 local artists were part of the event.

The market took place from the early afternoon into the evening.
