From Dawson Street and Walton Avenue in the South Bronx to Alexander and Bonin in Chelsea: Works by John Ahearn and Rigoberto Torres

February 6, 2014

"John Ahearn and Rigoberto Torres"

A stunningly evocative selection of life-like sculptures by John Ahearn, made in collaboration with Rigoberto Torres, is currently on exhibit at Alexander and Bonin at 132 10th Avenue in Chelsea.  Fashioned between 1981 through 1991, the works on display are an ode to the spirit and soul of the folks who called the South Bronx home during that decade.
