Dawoud Bey in Making Room: Museum of Space as Self-Expression

The Bronx Museum is a site of creative making and self-expression. The Making Room exhibition documents, celebrates, and extends that role—presenting artworks from participants in the Museum’s education programs along with works from the permanent collection and interactive elements.

Specifically, this exhibition highlights work by participants in Lifelong Studio, an art-making program for adults 55 and older, as well as by participants in Teen Council, a paid afterschool art program for high schoolers. The artworks produced by participants in these programs are rooted in their varied life experiences and explore personal narratives, memories, and modes of self-expression—within the context of the Museum.
