Graffitera: We Are Here Extended

Originally on view until August 20, Graffitera: We Are Here, will remain open to the public until September 17, 2021! The collection of works by Olga Correa and Missy "MRS" Caz is a continuation of the undeniable history of graffiti art in the Bronx.

Expressive self-portraits, graffiti lettering, and textile collages come together in a celebration of Bronx women in graffiti, bringing permanence to an often temporary form of art that asserts "We Are Here!"
