An Art Opening Like No Other

An Art Opening Like No Other

CultureVulture ? 3 years ago

Last night I arrived at Marcus Garvey Park at around 6:30PM. Where's everybody at? Turns out everybody was wherever they were at. Because the 45 assorted installations and exhibitions that comprise this year's FLUX Art Fair are scattered throughout Marcus Garvey Park as well as Harlem Art Park, Eugene McCabe Field, the National Jazz Museum, several area galleries and up and down 5th Avenue and Lenox Ave./Malcolm X Blvd. The area between 118th St. and 130th St. never looked so good!

One of the first pieces I encountered upon arrival was Blue Elegy, by Michael Pribich. As he explained, it's an homage to the cultural upheaval currently underway in Harlem - gentrification and the like... Here's a picture I took just prior to the opening last weekend.
