“It is an honor to recognize and support the tremendous talent in my community in Northern Manhattan,” said Aaron Simms, Inwood Art Works’ Founder and Executive Producer. “Inwood Art Works is a small organization that is working on making a big impact in arts and entertainment Uptown and promote the neighborhood, its residents and its artists.”
