The Bronx Museum of the Arts is dropping all admission fees beginning today, Thursday, March 29th, to go FREE full time. The museum has been free on Fridays, and just $5 for general admission and $3 for students and seniors the rest of the week. But museum officials told the Wall St. Journal that even that cheap NYC admission price created a barrier for low-income residents of the South Bronx. The Bronx Museum of the Arts is at 1040 Grand Concourse at 155th St., one subway stop south of Yankee Stadium. It opened in 1971 and focuses on contemporary art, especially by artists who have a relationship with the Bronx, such as a current exhibit of paintings of the Hunts Point neighborhood by Cuban artist Emilio Sanchez. The Bronx Museum of the Arts is open Thursday to Sunday only, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, and until 8 p.m. on Fridays. Be sure to visit the museum website for a virtual tour of the artwork.
