21. “Caesura: a forum” at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem


Marcus Garvey Park has been buzzing with activity, between The Classical Theatre of Harlem‘s free performances of The Tempest, Jazzmobile’s Free Summer Series of Concerts, the recent House Tour, the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival later this month, and the removal of the historic Harlem Fire Watchtower for renovation. Inspired by the watchtower and the community involvement surrounding it, artist Jessica Feldman and architects Jerome W. Haferd and K. Brandt Knapp created a piece that they hope will fill the architectural gap, inviting the community back to the Acropolis to enjoy the installation, the beauty of the space, and hear the sound component, which is a mirrored steel plate that emits sounds composed of the reverberations of bells and voices. Caesura: a forum will be on the Acropolis in Marcus Garvey Park through October 31, 2015. The DNA Totem, is scheduled to follow in 2016.
