Longwood Arts Project

United States
New York

The Longwood Arts Project is a flagship program of the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA). Founded in 1981, it was one of the first alternative gallery spaces in The Bronx and to this day maintains its pioneering focus on artists whose traditions and cultural practices are underrepresented by mainstream venues. The Project derives its name from its original location, at PS39 on Longwood Avenue, but since 2003 it has been located on the campus of Hostos Community College.
