HAA Arts Advocacy Month Celebration

  • Sugar Hill Children's 898 St Nicholas Ave, New York, NY 10032 (map)

This October 25th the Harlem Arts Alliance in partnership with Sugar Hill Children's Museum closes out Harlem Arts Advocacy Month with artistic & colourful explorations of the “American Dream.”


Join us for an illuminating evening featuring musical performances by youth-led & Harlem based IMPACT repertory Theatre followed by a dynamic panel discussion unpacking the intersections of family, theatre & the American Dream with Emmy & Tony award winning actors from the Broadway play “THE GREAT SOCIETY” and Pulitzer award winner ROBERT SCHENKKAN, followed by a family focused coloring workshop led by local artist & storyteller Alethia Brown 

Guided tours of Sugar Hill Children’s Museum newest exhibition Dreams and the Possibility of…. will also be available following the program along with opportunities for attendees to register for special edition library cards in partnership with NYPL. 

Dreams and the Possibility of…. examines artist Frederick J. Brown’s conception of “dreams” through three lenses: the imagined landscape, aspiration and possibility, and “the American Dream.” In concert with reflections provided by activist, journalist and founding member of the Last Poets Felipe Luciano, the works of art showcased in Dreams and the Possibility of... explore the themes of ancestry, belief, and culture, all of which, for Brown, were sites where dreams took shape. 

Additionally HAA in partnership with NYPL will curate a reading list dedicated to Frederick J. Brown’s exhibition to distribute during the program featuring the works of Felipe Luciano.
