The West Harlem Art Fund is producing a spring art exhibition in partnership with the Andrew Freedman House this May. Brimming on the Edge, will marry the disciplines of art, design and technology together. This exhibition coincides with NYCXDESIGN and the Frieze Art Fair located nearby on Randall’s Island. There is a budding movement revolutionizing the Western world. The public is demanding more customized experiences that reflect their personal lifestyle and appreciations. Yes, it’s easy to purchase a picture frame or a wine rack from a large retailer that’s inexpensive and probably made in China. But now, the public wants a unique work that’s made in the United States for which they can showoff in their home or keep as an heirloom. We wish to show the public these new possibilities in a number of combinations which will include a Bronx focus curated by Jeanine Alfieri, Director of the Fountainhead Gallery.
The West Harlem Art Fund is uniquely positioned to offer this experience. A fifteen year old public arts organization, we have produced numerous exhibitions and special events with artists and creative professionals wishing to share their talent with residents around the city. Public art for the West Harlem Art Fund has included traditional exhibitions, digital installations, storefront windows and live performances. The West Harlem Art Fund encourages audiences to not only think outside of the box – but to live outside the box.
Our heritage symbol is the double crocodile from West Africa — Funtunmmireku-Denkyemmirreku which means unity in diversity.
