Play (LABS) is a group exhibition that will link four East Harlem community gardens together and explore the importance of play for both children and adults. This public art series will begin in mid-October and last up to Thanksgiving. Functional play objects on a large scale will be fabricated specifically for each garden and programs will also be scheduled to engage local residents and visitors.
“On behalf of NYRP, I thank the West Harlem Art Fund for bringing exciting public art to our East Harlem gardens,” said Amanda Brown, NYRP’s director of community engagement. “Play (LABS) will create inviting, fun experiences in our gardens, and this partnership helps make public green spaces even greater community assets for the neighborhood.”
“We are thrilled to be working with NYRP. Open spaces are so important in urban places. To add creativity and room for exploration will help spark the innovation we are looking to stir in this country,” says Savona Bailey-McClain, executive director & chief curator for WHAF.
Artists featured in this public art exhibition are: Iliana Emilia Garcia, Tomo Mori, David Kasnic, Tyson Hall, and Badder Israel “Art Kartel.”
Public Programming will include a walking tour on October 26th in partnership with Art Kartel, biking tours on October 27th and 30th with Bicycle Utopia, and an artist talk on November 7th at Harlem Garage.
