Red Hook Houses is the first NYCHA campus to host a multi-part series of artist fellowships operated under the City Canvas pilot program, an initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs that repurposes construction fencing and sidewalk sheds in to a wide range of large-scale photography, digital print works, murals, and mixed-media art installations.

The NYCHA iteration of the program – entitled “Bridging the Divide’’ – was coordinated in conjunction with the nonprofit organization ArtBridge as well as several city agencies and private partners. The selected art installations created by Alden Parkinson and Harumi Ori were voted on by residents of Red Hook Houses East and West, and the community-based themes were curated after eight months of extensive input and feedback from public housing residents.
