Morris Park Performing Arts Center opens at Jacobi Hospital

A new performance space opened Sunday at New York Health + Hospitals/Jacobi in the Bronx.
The Morris Park Performing Arts Center at Jacobi, also known as MOJAC, was originally used as a conference space.
Morris Park Association president Al DeAngelo says he saw potential for the space. DeAngelo collaborated with the hospital to turn it into a performance hall for residents of the Bronx.
Sundays opening show featured local musical groups and provided a space for the community to enjoy the arts.
DeAngelo says he hopes the performance hall will become a place to host plays, children’s shows, open mic nights and more.
