The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) and New York Restoration Project (NYRP) present the 3rd Ephemeral Arts Project, a series of temporary art installations on display in June 2014. The project aims to create opportunities for artists from Northern Manhattan and beyond to engage with the varied landscapes and communities.
In conjunction with NoMAA’s Uptown Arts Stroll 2014, NYRP will host installations in Sherman Creek Park in Northern Manhattan (on Harlem River Drive, south of Dyckman Street). The opening will take place on Saturday 7 June 2014, coinciding with Hike the Heights; meet the artists from 10 to 10:45 a.m. The park is open sunrise to sundown, seven days a week.
Congratulations to this year’s ephemeral artists:

The artist wanted to encourage viewers to actively search the park, piecing the signs together to spell, E X P L O R E and in the process discover the flora and fauna found in this marvelous green space.
- Kirsten Compitello
An artistic depiction of wildlife in the park illustrates its role as not just social space but habitat, and highlights the role of nature within urbanism.
- Scribble Art Workshop
Small creatures with elaborate back stories inhabit a civilization of intricately and organically built structures in this world created by artists age five through eleven.
- Mariel Santana
Hive and Fracture
Pieces of Global Re-Con is an ongoing project that sources discarded materials for re-integration into the experiential environment.
