FLUX Public Art Projects, a FLUX Art Fair initiative, features over 40 public art installations for its second annual show. The fair will take place from May 3 through May 31, in several locations throughout Harlem’s parks and boulevards. The only contemporary art fair mounted in the neighborhood, FLUX embodies Harlem’s creative spirit and cultural significance by bringing together original works from large sculptural works to sound pieces, performance art and thought-provoking installations in rocks, fences and light-poles by over 40 innovative artists.

In Marcus Garvey Park, the Classical Theatre of Harlem will perform fight scenes from their summer 2016 production of Macbeth. Jose Rodriguez will perform Pennies From Heaven, an improvised live performance and symbolic offering of a penny mosaic. Aya Rodriguez-Izumi will also perform Temple, a one-on-one intervention based on divination practices from various cultures.The public is also invited to join artist Nancy Rakoczy in weaving the Liberian Flag. Visitors are encouraged to bring clean used plastic bags and tablecloths for this project.

FLUX Public Art Projects is presented in collaboration with Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, NYC Parks, and New York City Department of Transportation Art Program.
