South Bronx art show takes pride in community
An interactive art exhibit at Boriqua College on Washington Avenue seeks to shake some of the negative stigma associated with the South Bronx.
"Narrating Our Neighborhood: The Melrose Oral History Project" is open and free to the public.
"Oftentimes you hear stories of the South Bronx," says Elissa Carmona, a singer and one of 18 residents whose photographs are on display. "It's burning, and the blight -- but really it's about the culture and pride. And the stories here represent that."
The exhibition is part of a collaboration between the Women's Housing and Economic Development Corporation and New York University.
The show ends Friday at 2 p.m.
