THE BEST WAY TO CELEBRATE OUR 80TH ANNIVERSARY

Casita Maria is turning 80 this year and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our anniversary than by honoring the cultural achievements of our community. Casita Maria, City Lore and Dancing in the Streets are collaborating to commission and install a series of distinctive physical markers that identify key locations in the cultural history of the South Bronx. This collaboration is the most visible part of a larger, long-term project-the SOUTH BRONX CULTURE TRAIL-that captures key moments in the South Bronx's seminal cultural history. The project is supported by a $80,000, 2-year grant from THE NEW YORK COMMUNITY TRUST. In February 2014, the project was named by ARTPLACE AMERICA among its 97 finalists for the Creative Placemaking Awards. As part of this program, Folklorist, ELENA MARTINEZ will lead the next South Bronx Culture Trail and Bronx Music Heritage Center walking tour through The Municipal Art Society of New York's Jane's Walk 2014 on Saturday, May 3rd at 2:00 pm.
