BCA's New

Executive Director

The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) has announced the selection of Viviana Bianchi as its new executive director, after a six-month open search.

An arts development leader, Bianchi will serve as BCA’s fifth executive director since the organization’s founding in 1962. She has worked extensively in the development field in her native Argentina, Miami and New York City, where she’s leaving her position as Assistant Executive Director for External Affairs at Mind-Builders    Creative Arts Center in the Bronx, to lead BCA.


In Memoriam



The Bronx Council on the Arts sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Holly Block following her passing, as well as to the leadership and staff of the Bronx Museum of the Arts. It was our pleasure to be able to work with Holly and the museum staff on a number of programs and initiatives over the years, such as the PEN World Voices festival and the lively Bronx Stories performance series. She will be very missed.


Construction Continues!

We look forward to continue serving the Bronx in our future headquarters in 2018.

BCA’s future headquarters, located at 2700 East Tremont Avenue, serves as the springboard for cultural revival in Westchester Square. With the move, BCA will establish a new center of activity for Bronx residents, artists, and cultural and community organizations.
Congratulations to our 2017 BRIO Grantees
