The Public Art Initiative is an ongoing program created by the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance to support artists and cultural organizations who would like to exhibit in public spaces in neighborhoods throughout Harlem and Northern Manhattan. In 2016 the Public Art Initiative contributed funding to 27 public art installations in East and Central Harlem with funding provided in part by the Harlem Community Development Corporation. The sites included 5 NYC parks, Marcus Garvey Park, Harlem Art Park, Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Park, Jackie Robinson Park, and 3 meridians along Lenox Avenue and 2 meridians on East 106th Street also known as East Harlem’s Cultural Corridor.
