The Bronx Museum of the Arts will extend its free admission policy through 2015. That’s thanks to a $500,000 gift from Shelly and Donald Rubin, the couple behind the Rubin Museum of Art.
The Bronx Museum said since it launched its free admission policy a year ago, it’s seen a 50 percent boost in attendance. The museum also said the donation will allow it to host 30 additional schools and community groups for free cultural programs, including after-school programs, visits for groups with special needs, and outreach at local hospitals, business and settlement houses.ART, Bronx Education, Bronx Museum of Art, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx News, Bronx People, Community, Events In The Bronx, The Bronx, Tourism
