About Bronx Museum of the Arts
The Bronx Museum of the Arts is an internationally recognized cultural destination that presents innovative contemporary art exhibitions and education programs and is committed to promoting cross-cultural dialogues for diverse audiences. Since its founding in 1971, the Museum has played a vital role in the Bronx by helping to make art accessible to the entire community and connecting with local schools, artists, teens, and families through its robust education initiatives and public programs. In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the Museum implemented a universal free admission policy, supporting its mission to make arts experiences available to all audiences.
About XM Café

The XM Café comfortably seats over twenty guests in a light-filled, contemporary setting. The Café also serves as a venue for performances, presentations and other special events. The Museum is proud to partner on the café with Fountain House who engages locally sourced vendors and hires local Bronx residents through their nationally recognized employment program.
