Bussing in Harlem

On Saturday, August 9, everyone is invited to Harlem for a tour of the art galleries. Home of Romare Bearden (master collagist), Norman Lewis (abstract expressionist) and Jacob Lawrence (expressive figurative), Harlem is also a good place to find some less well known contemporary artists, too. Building on the success of the first ArtCrawl Harlem tour, Taste of Harlem Tours and Canvas Paper and Stone Gallery have organized a 6-hour guided bus tour of the local art galleries, culminating in a catered reception. Galleries include Canvas Paper and Stone Gallery, Striver’s Garden Gallery, Straight Out Of Harlem, Essie Green Galleries, Heath Gallery, Simmons Gallery, Karibu Gallery, Rio II Gallery, Hamilton Landmark Galleries. Or, if the idea of signing up for a bus tour is unappealing, just check out the galleries on your own.

Harlem Art Crawl, New York, NY. August, 9, 12-6pm.
