  • The featured image is a Harlem art installation entitled DNA Totem┬áby local sculpture artist, Suprina, who put out a call for personal objects from local residents a year in advance of the installation ~ thus her sculpture is a mix of treasured items by Harlem residents fixed as DNA in a piece that was on view in Marcus Garvey Park through the Public Art Initiative.
