What:

For the first time, youth from the Polo Grounds neighborhood in Harlem will be discovering how to use digital cameras, as part of the CITYarts mural project this summer. Experts at Samsung Experience will guide 40 students ages 9-12 in new media techniques that will enable them to capture images of their community and transfer them to the mural.

 

“As always and especially here at the Polo Grounds, CITYarts’ mural will raise awareness on the importance of lifelong learning through today’s technology and keep kids engaged in the creative process and away from the street this summer.”

-Tsipi Ben-Haim, Executive & Artistic Director

 

Who:

The Polo Grounds Community Center Mural is CITYarts’ and LitWorlds’ collaborative response to a need for arts programming and community collaboration in this area of Harlem. The “Community Identity” themed mural will ultimately be painted on the front wall of the community center. Its design will be based on the kids’ ideas and dreams. Over 80 students will be involved in the brainstorming workshops with CITYarts professional artist, Tova Snyder, where youth learn art-making and teamwork skills. Once the design is completed, community residents and volunteers will help youth paint their design on the wall, transforming a central space into an energizing mural they can be proud of.

 

When: Thursday, July 7th, 4-6pm

 

Where: Samsung Experience

10 Columbus Circle, third floor of the Time Warner Building
