Bronx Stories Hosted by Isaiah Sheffer Tonight at the Bronx Museum of the Arts

Here is news on a free spoken word event at the Bronx Museum of the Arts scheduled for later this evening.

TONIGHT, October 14, 2011, 6:30-9:00pm
Bronx Talks: Bronx Stories

Hosted by Isaiah Sheffer (a Bronx native, and founding artistic director of Symphony Space)
Featured Storytellers: Chantilly Mers, Paradigm, and Carlos J. Serrano

Join The Bronx Museum as we celebrate arts in the Bronx with an evening of stories, spoken word poetry, homespun songs, and dramatic readings. Tour the galleries to discover insights into selected artworks in the museum, and share your personal tales in an open mic session.

The goals of Bronx Stories are four-fold: to challenge stereotypes about the Bronx and promote positive images of the borough; to provide a platform for voices from the community and space for the community to come together; to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere in the museum; and to encourage deeper engagement with art.

This is a FREE program!
