All Along the Watchtower
Artist guided walk through
Leaving from Heath Gallery @ 7:45
The installation is best viewed as the sun begins to set and dusk approaches. All Along the Watchtower is made almost entirely of light reflective materials, the flash of the viewers camera will cause the materials to illuminate creating a soft glow all along the Acropolis.
Meet up with the artist and Marcus Garvey Park Alliance President Connie Lee at Heath Gallery at 7:45 pm and join us on a walk through of the Acropolis. Bring a camera with a flash or just your cell phone. The installation is sponsored by the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance Public Art Initiative with funding provided by the Harlem Community Development Corporation.
All parks groups, cultural organizations, artists and curators are welcome to participate.

The mission of the HarlemArtsFestival is to produce an annual multi-disciplinary arts festival in June of each year at the newly renovated Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park, free and open to the public, showcasing local performers and visual artists to inspire and nourish the artistic community in Harlem.
This year’s festival is set to take place on Friday and Saturday, on June 29th and 30th!
They seek artists from all disciplines to apply via their website and submit their work, where a committee of established artistic presenters from Harlem with backgrounds in music, dance, theater, and visual arts will help select the artists that will perform each year.
This project will be part of Harlem’s addition to the larger, citywide commitment to provide free art in the public parks during the spring and summer months.
