Music, art, theater, food, and a great place to chill
June 1 – June 30, 2018
Inwood Art Works is re-purposing the dormant Cliff Club on W. 202nd Street into Culture Hub, a pop-up community arts center that will be open from the first to the last day in June. Culture Hub is part of a vacant space activation program by Inwood Art Works with a goal to eventually create a permanent space for arts and culture in the Inwood community.
So what can you expect? A welcoming place to write, work on your craft, have meetings, rehearse or check out the art during Hang Time. Silent hours to meditate, read, or get work done (with tea/coffee and free WiFi). Plus see a wide range of professional local entertainment, including opera, circus, live music, comedy, and art. The Culture Hub will be a “Inwood’s Creative Space” for the entire month of June.
Also for the entire month there will be an exhibition and fundraising auction for Inwood Art Works featuring painting, drawing, works on paper, collage, printmaking, photography, mixed media, and illustration from emerging and established artists in Inwood and Washington Heights. Art can viewed and bid on throughout the exhibition period only at the gallery, ending on Saturday, June 30.
Be sure to regularly check our listings below for the diverse daytime and evening events we have planned for Culture Hub. And remember — Culture Hub will be open all day, six days a week, for you to make use of, whether there’s an event planned or not.
Funding was provided by the city’s Neighborhood 360° Program, which was created by the NYC Department of Small Business Services to “identify, develop, and launch commercial revitalization projects in partnership with local stakeholders.” Neighborhood 360° supports projects that strengthen and revitalize the streets, small businesses, and community-based organizations that anchor New York City neighborhoods.
