2017 Uptown Arts Stroll
For the past 14 years, local artists and leaders have partnered to build a stronger community through the arts in Northern Manhattan. The Uptown Arts Stroll is an annual showcase for this effort, giving a voice to an arts community that is growing in the often overlooked and quickly gentrifying neighborhoods of West Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood.
Since 2003, the Uptown Arts Stroll has grown from a one-day event to a month-long celebration offering a wide variety of arts and cultural events north of West 135th Street. The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) in collaboration with local artists, businesses, community leaders and institutions, has produced the Uptown Arts Stroll since 2008.
During the month of June the 2017 Uptown Arts Stroll features open studios, art exhibitions, concerts, literary events, and performances throughout upper Manhattan from West 135th Street to West 220th Street.
The Uptown Arts Stroll kickoff was held on May 31st at United Palace and the closing celebration is being held on June 28th from 6:00pm-8:30pm at the Harlem School of the Arts.
