Harlem Needle Arts Exhibit Opens At Manhattan Borough President’s Office

Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer announced the opening of a new exhibit curated by cultural art institute Harlem Needle Arts in her office’s Maggi Peyton Gallery.

Using thread and textile, the exhibit’s artists unpack the diversity of African American culture and honor the Black experience in the U.S. and abroad. Their quilting applies rich geometric patterns and embellishments to elevate the art form and create imaginative pieces.

B.P. Brewer will host an opening reception for the exhibit Tuesday, February 12 at 6:00 pm.

Continues until Friday, March 22, 2019
