Harlem Arts Council opens in new location
By Caitlin Boland

Members of the Harlem Arts Council help Harlem Mayor Robert Culpepper cut the ribbon to open the council’s new location.
The Harlem Arts Council celebrated a move to the new Harlem Civic Center on Sept. 2.
The Harlem Arts Council (HAC) was established in November 2014.
“We’re relatively new, and we’ve done really well,” said Linda Jung, vice president of Harlem Arts Council. “We’re really excited to be in this new location.”
HAC recently moved into the former Harlem Library at 375 N. Louisville Street.
HAC is a nonprofit, educational organization that provides Harlem and the surrounding area with quality art, according to the HAC website.
The council provides lessons on various types of art including acrylic, oil and alcohol painting as well pottery. The council also sponsors free events. An example of this is on Sept. 22 with School Daze, an event based on the 1950s.
“Art brings a community together and it stimulates the community,” Jung said. “When you’re going to a local business, you may want to stop in and look at the art. Also, people come from a little ways away. I know I go to Thomson to see MAC on Main and go to Washington to see theirs. It’s just a fun thing to do.”
