Thursday, Feb.15th.


Imagine a community space free to all, making art instruction accessible, and imagine it happening in Harlem for the African-American community.

The idea for the Harlem Community Art Center came from African-American artists in the Harlem Artists Guild. They envisioned a community space free to all, making art instruction accessible. The Harlem Community Art Center was based on the ideal that art was central to community, and aspired to be both a space for exposing people to art and an institution for developing African-American artists.
