The Stroll conceived by Atim Annette Oton, Director and Curator of Calabar Gallery, was first launched in 2017 as an innovative collaboration of galleries, art spaces, and businesses focused on bringing visitors to Harlem and residents to see art in their neighborhood.

The relaunch, according to Oton, is to “show the diversity of galleries and art in Harlem, bring people back to all these businesses, increase foot traffic lost from Covid-19 and most importantly, remind people that Harlem is an art destination.”

Twenty-one businesses and organizations are participating in the relaunch. For Sandra Alexis Heath, “The Harlem Arts Stroll is a great way to introduce art lovers to several “best-kept secret” cultural gems that make up Harlem’s vibrant art scene.

Heath Gallery is participating to increase awareness that we’re here.” And Reginald Rousseau of Underground Gallery, “as an Artist and a Creative Entrepreneur, [Underground Gallery + Studio] through participating in the Harlem Arts Stroll. I hope to; Join the artistic community in unifying and enriching the Harlem community; and to Expose my artworks to a wider audience. To participate in the stroll, registration is at Eventbrite: here
