What We Call Home: Teens Curate the Collection

Curated by The Bronx Museum Teen Council

Home is a familiar place where you can find comfort in your surroundings. During the quarantine home has also become a space to learn, grow, build and rest. Each of the artworks we selected depicts our cultures and community as we see them. By showing the perspectives of the less represented lives of the people of New York we are centering the positive aspects of our city: our home.

This exhibit was curated by the Bronx Museum’s Teen Council in the winter of 2020-21 and features works from the Museum’s permanent collection.
