John Ahearn and Rigoberto Torres immortalize their South Bronx studio’s neighbors through their art.  Sometimes working collaboratively, sometimes alone, the artists create three-dimensional plaster casts of the torsos of the people around their Bronx studio.  Their work is a measure of their interest in strengthening the community in which they work.

Traveled to Witte de With, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; The Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Ohio; and Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii.
