A Mott Haven Bedroom is a Work of Art
Artist Blanka Amezkua, 37, who is of Mexican descent, has opened up her bedroom into a public art gallery right inside an apartment building on Alexander Avenue in Mott Haven. It is known as the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project.
The Bronx Beat recently featured Amezkua and her blue bedroom project.
