The West Harlem Art Fund (WHAF) is a twen­ty-six year old, pub­lic art and new media orga­ni­za­tion. Like explor­ers from the past, who searched for new lands and peo­ple, WHAF seek oppor­tu­ni­ties for artists and cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als through­out NYC and beyond wish­ing to show­case and share their tal­ent. The West Harlem Art Fund presents art and cul­ture in open and pub­lic spaces to add aes­thet­ic inter­est; pro­mote his­tor­i­cal and cul­tur­al her­itage; and sup­port com­mu­ni­ty involve­ment in local devel­op­ment. Their her­itage sym­bol Afun­tum­mireku-denkyemmtreku: is the dou­ble croc­o­dile from West Africa Ghana which means uni­ty in diversity.

On Gov­er­nors Island, they will present a fiber art show with per­for­mances in the spring that delves deep in Amer­i­can land­scape, his­to­ry and water. Dur­ing the sum­mer, the orga­ni­za­tion will bring back their artist res­i­den­cy pro­gram with mul­ti­ple work­shops for the pub­lic to engage and their con­cert series with exper­i­men­tal and fusion jazz. Then they end the sea­son with an Afro-futur­ism show in part­ner­ship with sev­er­al artists across the city dur­ing fall art season.
