Please join artist Gina Goico for a community engagement performance in which passersby and people from the community are invited to collaborate in the collective hand weaving of a pelliza (Dominican Rag Rug).

These pellizas will be hung as banners for the temporary public art installation Sanar in Inwood Hill Park. Sanar is a reminder of the power that lies within symbolic practices–recognizing our hurts, holding space for our communities and ourselves, and being purposeful in healing through our own practices.

The installation is the result of a performance and collaborative work with people from the neighborhood. Sanar is part of Persuasive Visions, a Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) public art with curatorial support by Stephanie Lindquist.

Please join artist Gina Goico for a community engagement performance in which passersby and people from the community are invited to collaborate in the collective hand weaving of a pelliza (Dominican Rag Rug).

These pellizas will be hung as banners for the temporary public art installation Sanar in Inwood Hill Park. Sanar is a reminder of the power that lies within symbolic practices–recognizing our hurts, holding space for our communities and ourselves, and being purposeful in healing through our own practices. The installation is the result of a performance and collaborative work with people from the neighborhood. Sanar is part of Persuasive Visions, a Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) public art with curatorial support by Stephanie Lindquist.

Watch the Harlem Meer get spooky! Once the activities are finished at twilight (about 6:30 pm), find a spot along the edge of the Harlem Meer and watch as the jack-o’-lanterns float by in New York’s largest pumpkin flotilla!

Please note: Pumpkins in our flotilla cannot be returned. Thank you for your contribution to our event.
