In 2015, the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance (MGPA) organized the Public Art Initiative (PAI), an ongoing program that strives to preserve and celebrate the creative culture that Harlem is famous for. The MGPA serves as a comprehensive fiscal sponsor creating opportunities for local artists and artists of color with connections to the uptown communities that we serve. The MGPA works collaboratively to facilitate these installations with city agencies. Since the inception of the program the PAI has facilitated 29 public art installations in parks and other sites throughout Harlem and East Harlem, often collaborating with arts and cultural organizations as well as community stakeholders.
