Join us on Saturday, July 19th for the launch of the Boogie Down Booth, an outdoor music installation underneath the 2/5 subway tracks in the Bronx.
The second site-specific installation for our Under the Elevated project, the Boogie Down Booth was designed by Participatory Design Fellow Chat Travieso to test how the space under the 2/5 subway tracks could be more hospitable for residents and visitors alike. Sited below the Freeman Street subway station, the Booth includes solar-powered LED lights, seating for people waiting for the bus, and directional speakers that pipe Bronx-born music to combat the rumble of the trains above.
Our launch event is part of a day-long program of The Bronx Music Heritage Center celebrating women and percussive traditions in Africa and in New York City. Read more about the full line-up of events for Bronx Rising.
Can't make this event? Don't worry, the booth will be installed through September 15, 2014!
