The 2019 Uptown Arts Stroll – The Recap

BY Led Black (@Led_Black)

The 2019 Uptown Arts Stroll was simply stellar. From the opening reception at the United Palace to the closing ceremony at the Harlem School of the Arts, the 2019 Uptown Arts Stroll was a rousing success. A big thanks is in order to the Executive Director of the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), Joanna Castro, for entrusting me with taking over their social media for the 2019 Uptown Arts Stroll. It was an honor and a privilege and gave me an entirely new perspective on the Uptown Art Stroll.

I was also super fortunate to get to interview two of my personal heroes, Luis Miranda and Lin-Manuel Miranda, at the Opening Reception of the stroll at the United Palace.

Check out that interview here.

One of my favorite events of the stroll was Open Studios, which lets folks into the artist’s studios and their artistic process. Shout out to all the artists who opened their studios and their hearts to the community. Love also goes out to all the folks that came out and supported their local artists. Open Studios is about so much more than just art, it is about culture, community and creating connections. In this current political climate that is more important than ever.
