    Making Humps and Bumps – Wednesday is the last day of this exhibition at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL). It documents the making of Humps and Bumps, the wood-and-rubber, 44inch x 96inch x 120inch sculpture at Archer Avenue and 158th Street in Jamaica (GMAP) from BroLabs. BroLabs is a critically acclaimed collective of five artists formerly featured at the Bronx Museum of Fine Arts. This is the last day of the exhibition, so come and see how it was made; afterwards, sit or play on the sculpture itself, located only an avenue away from JCAL.
