NEW YORK CITY Harlem once again shines as a beacon of art in New York City. A celebration of Harlem’s artistic prowess is marked by the 6th annual Harlem Open Artist Studio Tour (H.O.A.S.T.)-- a two- day, self-guided walking tour of artists? studios, museums and galleries in historic Harlem. The event will take place on Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16 from 12 p.m. till 6 p.m.
The tour is free to the public and can be started at:
Casa Frela (47 West 119th St),
Work Space Harlem (2340 Fifth Ave near 141st St.)
Floor4Art (2136 Fredrick Douglass Blvd. near 116th St)
Hamilton Landmark Gallery (239 W 145th St.), and
Taller Boricua (1680 Lexington Ave. near 106th St.)
H.O.A.S.T. features visual artists, performing artists, and authors and poets reading from their work. Harlem?s artists range from emerging talent to internationally recognized figures, with studios from traditional loft spaces to converted bedrooms. Art ranges from cutting-edge new media and outsider art to more traditional styles or representation and abstraction.
