Announcing June Fordham Fever Friday: Fordham Road Beach Party!
The statue that stood at the corner of Fordham Road and Webster Avenue now has a new home! Thanks to the Andrew Freedman Home, “Tomorrow,” sculpted by Japanese artist Akihiro Ito, will stay in the Bronx. The BID was connected with the Andrew Freedman Home through our friends at the Bronx Arts Factory.
Ito has also donated the Statue “A Child” to a local school – I.S. 254 – and plans to return to the Bronx after a visit to his home in Japan.
The Fordham Road BID continues to support the arts and is looking forward to bringing many more memorable pieces to the Bronx community.
