Clark Center NYC is dedicated to preserving the history and continuing the legacy of The Clark Center for the Performing Arts, which Alvin Ailey helped to create in 1959 as a uniquely diverse arts community in New York City. A rich resource for dancers, choreographers, students and others interested in dance, Clark Center NYC expands its website content, archives, education/mentoring, symposia and presentations to honor the past, champion the present and build for the future.
El Barrio’s Artspace PS109 is a community-driven project which has transformed an abandoned public school building in East Harlem into an arts facility with 89 units of affordable live/work housing for artists and their families and 10,000 square feet of complementary space for arts organizations.
