The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation would like to update the residents of East Harlem, Central Harlem and members of the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance and the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association about the restoration of the fire watchtower.
Join Artist Sarah Rowe up on the Acropolis in Marcus Garvey Park for a slide show of Sarah Rowe’s work that documents and pays tribute to culturally significant buildings and sites in Harlem. Composer Rohin Khemani’s original composition that was inspired by the bell sounds of the fire watchtower will be played. All attendees will be given an opportunity to create an artifact of the Acropolis using Sarah’s technique of pressing clay against any textures, forms, fissures or features of the Acropolis to create a permanent record.
