Event description

Description

Art is life in East Harlem! Our goal with this campaign is to restore and improve our murals, starting with "the Spirit of East Harlem". While Hope provides affordable housing to as many East Harlem residents as possible, our tenants and the community at large face significant challenges in terms of threats to their cultural and artistic heritage. In 1974, Hope commissioned ‘The Spirit of East Harlem’, a large-scale public mural which has achieved iconic status within the community. The mural depicts the neighborhood as it was then, during an uncertain but exciting time in the city’s history. Now, we must preserve this critical piece of East Harlem’s legacy. Your donation will help us ensure that this significant work of art and cultural history, is available for community members, students and those who visit our community.
