7. All Along the Watchtower in Marcus Garvey Park
Lady K Fever installing All Along the Watchtower
All Along the Watchtower, the latest installation by Lady K Fever, is made almost entirely of light reflective materials. Beginning along the curved staircase on the Madison Avenue side of Marcus Garvey Park, leading up to the Acropolis, and continuing along the construction fence that surrounds the site of Harlem’s historic fire watchtower. The installation continues back down the walkway on the west side of the mountain behind the Amphitheater. Viewers are encouraged to use a flash while taking photos for an extra sparkle of color.

All Along the Watchtower will be on view from August 1 through August 31. While you’re in Harlem, walk over to Lenox Avenue and pick up a free map of local art installations and restaurants, located at shops and restaurants along the Lenox Avenue restaurant row.
