The artworks created for residents of NYCHA’s Adams Houses in the South Bronx focus on communication and speaking through images. Using history and symbols as powerful tools for self-representation, the artworks by Alex Rivera and Kevin Claiborne represent the values of intentional communication and honoring cultural heritage.
The artists led art workshops in cooperation with the Adams Houses Resident Association. Residents learned various art practices while chatting and sharing life experiences. Ultimately, the artists and residents centered their conversations around community, pride, and identity.
