The Bronx Gala.

COURTESY CAPITALE

This year at the Bronx Museum of Art’s Bronx Gala, three new awards will be added to the program, and will be presented by musician and arts advocate Swizz Beatz. The three honorees are Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman who will win the Art for Justice Visionaries Award for their nation-wide civic engagement piece For Freedoms, Junko Kobayashi, president of the Stan Lee Foundation, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, and art journalist, curator, and playwright Carey Lovelace will receive the Visionaries Pathmaker Award (to be presented by Joseph Mizzi, Chairperson of Bronx Museum of Art board of trustees.)

“For the first time, this year’s gala will recognize visionary leaders dedicated to social justice, and we are thrilled to present three new awards that work toward a more equitable and civil society.” Deborah Cullen, the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s executive director told ARTnews. “The honorees share the Bronx Museum’s commitment to a more open and democratic art world — one in which all voices are welcomed and empowered, and one that express our tremendous cultural and community wealth.”
