The Africa Center in Harlem Opened its Doors ~ January 2019



Preview programming has begun in anticipation of The Africa Center opening its doors later in January, 2019. In addition to the Museum, Chef Pierre Thiam’s Senegalese restaurant, Teranga, opened in February, and Portals, presented in partnership with Shared Studios, an interactive installation that allows visitors to connect in real-time with locations on the African continent and around the world via conversations, dinners, classes and other curated interactions will also go live.

There are more exciting things going on at The Africa Center – like their Artist-in-Residence, Victor Ekpuk, creating new ephemeral artwork inspired by the neighborhood.

In addition to the announcement of the opening of Teranga, The Africa Center website has several job opportunities available.

The Africa Center, designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, is located at 1280 Fifth Avenue at 110th Street, across the street from Central Park and the Harlem Meer, at the Duke Ellington Circle.

One thought on “The Africa Center in Harlem Opened its Doors ~ January 2019

  1. The NYC community has been waiting a long time for our museum to open to the public.
    We look forward to share African Diasporan art with our children. Who knows, maybe we can inspire a new Jacob Lawrence, Augusta Savage or Charles White.
