The West Harlem Art Fund has been working with street artist Kathleena Howie for over a year. Pushing the artist to expand her graffiti/street art practice with her love of fine art. Her most recent work ALL RISE can be seen at the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse on Brook Avenue. The artist was able to enmesh her work into a semi-active construction site.

With Under the Viaduct, the area surrounding the viaduct is also an active construction site. Three major construction projects are going on simultaneously — Columbia University, NYC Economic Development Corporation and NYC Department of Transportation. West Harlem is going through a transformation along and near its waterfront. Our goal is to infuse art that will embrace neighborhood flavor, assets and appreciations.

Reflective art for Under the Viaduct will move and appear as construction signage. But the messages will speak to New Yorkers and how they are able to navigate a constantly changing City.
