Art imitates life in a brand new exhibit on display in Westchester Square! An opening reception was held in honor of ‘Bronx Faces: A Solo Exhibition by Annie Legnini’ on Saturday, June 9 at the Huntington Free Library. The Morris Park artist created this series by taking photo submissions from people all across the borough and transforming their portraits into lifelike mixed media masterpieces using everyday materials. The exhibition documenting the Bronx experience through culture, race and class will be on display until Wednesday, June 27.
