Environmental art

I’d like to feature a meaningful piece of art by Alejandra Delfin, a graphic designer at the Point Community Development Corporation in the South Bronx. This work was recently featured on the Just Seeds website. Some students in my research in the South Bronx work with Alejandra.

Alejandra’s profile copied from the Just Seeds website:
“Alejandra Delfin is the founder and executive director of Studio 889, a community printmaking workshop located in the Hunts Point community of the South Bronx. A native of Peru, Delfin studied at the Bob Blackburn Printmaking Workshop and the Art Students League of New York. In Paris, she trained at the legendary Atelier 17 studio with renowned printmaker Stanley William Hayter, as well as at La Grande Chaumiere and L’École des Beaux Arts, Paris. She moved to the Bronx in 1989. Her work has been exhibited internationally, regionally and in New York City at various galleries and institutions, including BAAD!, the Bronx River Art Center, the Longwood Gallery, the Beacon Artist Union Gallery, the Broom Gallery, the Cinque Gallery, Smith College, the Brecht Forum, Convento de San Francisco Museo De La Nation, and the Aliansa Francesa in Lima, Peru. Delfin is currently a fellow of the Sustainable South Bronx Fabrication Laboratory.”
