Paintings from East Harlem

Harlem Horizon Art Studio

Established in 1989 as part of Harlem Hospital’s Injury Prevention Program, the Harlem Horizon Art Studio at Harlem Hospital Center offers art therapy for pediatric patients who suffer physical and psychological trauma, and for outpatients and community members of all ages. 

Since 1989, the studio has encouraged participants to express themselves freely and develop their creative voice through drawing and painting. Artists’ work has been displayed at Harlem Hospital and featured in various U.S. gallery exhibitions.

Artist Statement

These paintings are by youth from the Harlem Horizon Art Studio, which began in 1989 as part of an injury prevention program in the pediatrics and pediatric surgery division at Harlem Hospital. The studio enabled young people to express themselves and heal from physical and psychological injuries.
