ArtCrawl Harlem along with other local NYC arts, culture and environmental programs return to Governors Island to offer programs and residencies within the historical homes on Nolan Park. ArtCrawl Harlem, a New York City-based non-profit arts organization will host its 2nd Annual “Boundaries and Connection” Artist Residency Program from May 1st through October 31, 2021 on Governors Island. This year’s residency theme is “Art and Activism” prompting each Artist to create a body of work from their own perspective.
The artists will also have access to Governors Island’s expansive landscapes as a resource, helping them to retreat and reflect on their practices.
ArtCrawl Harlem has awarded three NYC-based artists a 6-week residency program. This year’s residents are, Painter and Mixed-Media Artists, Mario Joyce, Portrait Artist and Photographer, Michael Odele and Painter and Mixed Media Artist, Melissa Sutherland.
Artists receive a stipend, free daytime workspace, mentoring, space to exhibit their existing artwork during open studio tours and virtual programming showcasing their artwork and process. A group exhibition featuring their completed residency work is planned for later in the year at a Harlem-based gallery.
