The Studio Museum in Harlem presents inHarlem Open House: Mindful Monuments

May 11, 2018
4:00  -  6:00
18 Mt Morris Park W, New York, NY 10027

While The Studio Museum in Harlem’s galleries are currently closed in preparation for a late Fall 2018 groundbreaking on our new building, the Museum is working to deepen our roots in the community through inHarlem, a dynamic set of collaborative programs in our neighborhood. On the occasion of our upcoming exhibition Maren Hassinger: Monuments, join us from 4-6pm in Marcus Garvey Park for a series of breathwork, meditation and yogic exercises that explore how mindful practices help to sustain ourselves, our communities and our public spaces.

This dynamic walking tour activates the eight sites where Hassinger’s site-specific sculptures will be installed later this year, which use locally-sourced branches to create organic forms that respond to aspects of the park’s landscape. This program—much like Maren’s sculptures themselves—will encourage passersby to pause, observe and engage their surroundings, providing a unique opportunity for the community to take an active role in conversations around the changes that impact their public spaces.

Before the program, make sure to stop by our new Visitor Center to view renderings of our new building, share your thoughts on our Reflection Wall, and learn more about other upcoming inHarlem programs and projects.
