Harlem Art Walk will open the doors of artist studios, guide visitors around a far-flung network of gallery spaces in turn-of-the-last century townhouses, former breweries, tucked away in brownstones, and in major cultural institutions, along with special exhibitions in local venues and pop-up spaces featuring Harlem-based artists.
The structure of the Art Walk envisions two components: a series of major “events” – the “walks” themselves and related programming – and an ongoing platform that promotes and supports the interests of Harlem visual artists and our institutional infrastructure of galleries, museums, presenting spaces, curators, and related “culturals“.
We will weave a marvelous tapestry that embraces Harlem’s fascinating diversity of fine arts and artists. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance. We are passionate to share our love and respect for the important contributions Harlem has made to the cultural life of America and throughout the world. We are proud to honor that tradition and to help start it on its path for the next 100 years!
