Exhibition & neighborhood Art Walk
September 2022-Spring 2024

Concourse House, Home for Women and Their Children is delighted to present You are more than enough, an exhibition of newly commissioned art by mother-artists Amanda Renee Jewell, Yafatou Sarr and Dayanara Savinon in collaboration with Serviam Seniors, Concourse House families and their neighborhood community in the Bronx.

About the Exhibition 

You are more than enough follows the journeys of the women’s transition from Concourse House shelter and shifts the narrative from individuals trying to get out to making a life of their own, helping each other emotionally, physically, and creatively. 


Using public sculpture, crochet, weaving, beading, writing and songwriting, the exhibition explores themes of peace, recovery, belonging and friendship. 


The exhibition takes shape as a neighborhood art walk. Art installations are located at Concourse House, Home for Women and Their Children, Refuge House and Serviam Campus (map below). On route you will find crochet murals and texts, paintings and sneaker art located on the exterior of our buildings, local bodegas, subway stations, sidewalks and more.

The exhibition is curated by Concourse House arts curator Jess Rolls in affiliation with Concourse House and Fordham Bedford Community Services.

Thank you
