Harlem’s first large-scale sculpture exhibition

Transforming Historic Parks into Artistic Landscapes in Spring 2024

A Journey through Art and Community

Launching in Spring 2024, the Harlem Sculpture Gardens is a groundbreaking initiative transforming historical Morningside, St. Nicholas, and Jackie Robinson parks into a vibrant exhibition space. In collaboration with the West Harlem Art Fund and New York Artist Equity Association, we bring sculpture, dance, and sound art to the heart of Harlem, celebrating its rich cultural tapestry.

Interactive Art Adventures

Experience the Harlem Sculpture Gardens in a unique, interactive way.
Our technological partnership will allow visitors to explore the installations through
a location-based GPS mobile tour, blending art with cutting-edge technology.

Art for All

Inclusivity is at the heart of Harlem Sculpture Gardens. We invite artists of color and emerging artists from underserved communities to contribute their creativity to the Harlem Sculpture Gardens. Our community-driven selection process ensures diverse voices shape the artistic landscape.

Engaging Communities

Beyond art, the Harlem Sculpture Gardens is about community. We’re fostering park stewardship through educational workshops and engaging local youth in artistic endeavors. This is more than an exhibition; it’s a movement towards a more inclusive and culturally vibrant Harlem.
