One of New York City's less well known museums, The Bronx Museum of the Arts was founded in 1971 to serve the diverse community of the Bronx and the Metropolitan area.

The Museum's PERMANENT COLLECTION, established in 1986, consists of over 700 twentieth-century and contemporary works of art in all media (e.g., paintings, photographs, prints, mixed media, and sculpture) by artists of African, Asian, and Latin American ancestry. Guided by the Museum's mission--to serve the ethnically-diverse populations of the Bronx and to stimulate community participation primarily through the visual arts--the permanent collection reflects the Museum's surrounding communities and constituents, comprised primarily of African American and Latino populations, as well as a growing number of Asian-American communities in the metropolitan area.
