In Dialouge - St.Nicolas Park - Public Art Project

Public Art works by City Collge MFA students
Scherezade Garcia and Marcie Revens
June 8th - July 17th

For Immediate Release ... The West Harlem Art Fund, Inc. and The City College of New York’s Division of Humanities and the Arts are hosting a daring exhibition in historic St. Nicholas Park -- bringing contemporary art installations by new artists that mix history, community and landscape together for residents and New Yorkers alike. Public viewing begins June 16, 2010.

As apart of the college’s MFA program, a special “studio” was created last fall. Artists Scherezade Garcia and Marcie Revens were chosen from a panel to participate in the exhibition “In Dialogue”. Historic St. Nicholas Park which slopes below the neo-gothic campus of City College was designed by George Browne Post and overlooks both West and Central Harlem.

The college’s motto: Respice (Past), Adspice (Present), Prospice (Future), suits this exhibition especially well. In result, this collaboration bridges new attitudes and forges bold artistic expressions.

The MFA program at The City College of New York provides an opportunity for students to study studio art in the heart of the art world -- New York City. The City College of New York’s Division of Humanities & the Arts insures an intensive professional experience and affords students the opportunity to follow their creative vision in a collaborative environment. The MFA Program offers instruction in the theory, practice, and teaching of the visual arts through a required sequence of courses as well as in-depth training in one or more of the following areas of specialization: drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, or ceramic design.

The West Harlem Art Fund, Inc. is a twelve year old, cultural arts and preservation organization. WHAF offers exhibition opportunities for artists and creative professionals wishing to share their talent with residents in Northern Manhattan and around the city. The West Harlem Art Fund, Inc. showcases art and culture in open, public spaces to add aesthetic interest to our part of the city; promote historical and cultural heritage; and support community involvement in local development. The organization’s African symbol is the double crocodile from West Africa. Funtunmmireku-Denkyemmirreku means unity in diversity

This exhibition is in partnership with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation and its Public Art Program administered by the venerable Mr. Jonathan Kuhn and Ms. Jennifer Lantzas. Special thanks are given to Manhattan Community Board 9 and the Friends of St. Nicholas Park for their support.
