My journey with Concourse House and the Fordham-Bedford community was a pleasant surprise to say the least. Not only have I expanded my encounters and learned about the spaces public art fills, but I've also learned of the people who helped to create such beautiful pieces, which was none other than the community itself! As I transition from becoming an intern to a researcher, here are some photos that look to provide an insight into each of my encounters along my time at Concourse House.
