David Flores’ Nueva Bronx: 21st Century Families project, which will take place in the Bronx’s Railroad Park daily, celebrates family as being central to the human experience and essential in forging community connections. The project is a response to nationalist movements which attempt to dehumanize immigrant families. Flores will be offering on-site photography, printing, display and digital sharing in the park to families and friends who wish to be photographed. People of all ages are encouraged to come as a family, be formally photographed, and receive a free large format print.
Nueva Bronx: 21st Century Families is a partnership between ArtBuilt, NYC Parks, Queens Museum, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, along with local Bronx partners including The Dreamyard Project, The Bronx Defenders, and WHEDCo.
