A new exhibit is celebrating Staten Island's diversity and culture.
'Shaolin: Into the 36 Chambers' opened at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art. It features 26 Staten Island artists exploring the theme of Staten Island's cultural identity.
Curator Jahtiek Long says the exhibit is called Shaolin because of the name given to the borough by the hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan.
"Sometimes it feels as though we don't really embrace all the narratives, the stories that come through here. So basically the show was to honor a part of our culture, pay homage too. And also explore the new creative scene," he said.
The exhibit is open through May 6.
