Thursday, October 20, 2021, 6:00PM

Learn a scratchboard art technique, led by artist Lovie Pignata. During one of two 90 minute sessions, participants will learn Bronx facts and history while creating scratchboard art of a still life assembled with artifacts from local history and culture. The five part art process results in a colorful scratchboard artwork. All skill levels are welcome. Ages 10 & up. City Artist Corps Grants was launched in June 2021 by NYFA and DCLA with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre. Please RSVP here as space is limited. We will be following NYC mask and vaccine mandates.


“Happy Birthday Collis!”
Friday, October 22, 2021, 6:00PM

This year our very own Collis P. Huntington would have been 200! What better way to celebrate such a legacy than to have a special gathering at his namesake Huntington Free Library in The Bronx! Join us for an evening of friends, historic and art exhibitions, snacks, and a toast at the fireplace to good ol’Collis. This event will be in collaboration with Loving The Bronx and the East Bronx History Forum. We will be following NYC mask and vaccine mandates.
