“SILVER” DREAMS ON FORDHAM ROAD
Public Art Display on Fordham Road
FORDHAM ROAD, BRONX, NEW YORK


The Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID) is proud to announce the unveiling of “Silver”, a ten foot tall sculpture of found and recycled material. Created by Christian Marche, a Bronx based artist, “Silver” was constructed from refuse collected from New York City streets and transformed into a sculpture. “Silver” was installed this month on the South-side overpass at the intersection of East Fordham Road and Grand Concourse.



This work of art was made possible through a partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Urban Art Program along with Barbara Bullard from the Al Johnson Art Studio. Additional funding for “Silver” was made possible with public funds from the Bronx Council on the Arts through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Greater New York Arts Development Fund Regrants Program.

The BID will be hosting a future public press unveiling of “Silver” with the artist in the coming weeks. An additional notification will be sent out that time.


The Fordham Road BID is a non-profit corporation under contract with the City of New York to provide supplementary services to the community. The BID focuses on sanitation, beautification, promotion and overall advocacy of the Fordham Road area – striving to make the district a more attractive and dynamic locale in which to shop, work and visit. The BID boundaries extend from Third to Jerome Avenues along East Fordham Road and also includes the commercial areas on select side streets. The district is comprised of approximately 80 buildings and almost 300 businesses ranging from nationwide chains to locally owned independent shops.


For more information about this program or any of our other services, please contact the BID office at (718) 562-2104 or
