Art on the Ave uses vacant storefronts and existing businesses in high- visibility locations to create interactive art exhibitions for all to enjoy. Our next exhibition will be located in Washington Heights and will be a collaboration between Art on the Ave NYC and the Washington Heights BID, with the support of NoMAA. All three organizations work to enrich neighborhoods and foster a sense of place through public art.
Washington Heights has a distinct legacy, small and independent businesses, and residents that engage in their community. It is bustling, colorful, and lively.
We want to highlight this neighborhood’s shops, restaurants and outdoor markets and vendors, its vibrant art scene, its schools, and its people from around the globe. This is a place where culture, community, and commerce converge.
