Public Art Initiative


In 2015, the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance (MGPA) organized the Public Art Initiative (PAI), an ongoing program intended to strengthen the networks between the neighborhoods of Harlem through public art installations. The PAI encourages local artists and artists of color, to propose temporary public art installations for parks and other sites throughout Harlem. The MGPA works collaboratively to facilitate these installations with city agencies and to assist artists with the costs of fabrication and installation. In 2016, the PAI provided partial or full funding to 27 public art installations that were installed throughout Central and East Harlem.
