Description:

From Norwood to Mott Haven there's plenty of public art to keep curious visitors satisfied when wandering around the Bronx. This exemplary website created by the Lehman College Art Gallery and the City University of New York provides an overview of artworks in public places, complete with descriptions of the major art installations, teacher resources, walking tours, and maps. On the right-hand of the page, visitors will find topical sections such as "Artists", "Sites", "Biographies", "Neighborhoods", and "Walking Tours and Maps". The geographically minded may wish to click on "Neighborhoods" to get started. Here they will find brief profiles of each neighborhood, and it's a good way to get a sense of each community's historical development. Moving on, visitors can use the walking tours and maps to help students in art appreciation, urban studies, or geography courses get a feel for the resources of these areas. The site is rounded out by the Bronx Public Art Inventory and a direct link to the Lehman College Art Gallery homepage.
