For 30 years, the Broadway Mall Association (BMA) has worked to beautify and maintain the malls. Initially founded as a community organization in 1980 by Eugene Hide to address the neglect of the malls stemming from the City’s fiscal crisis of the 1970s, the BMA became a not-for-profit organization in 1987. Today, BMA remains committed to carrying out Eugene Hide’s vision of the Broadway malls as a beautiful stretch of greenery uniting the diverse neighborhoods along Broadway.
Gitler &_____ is an art gallery dedicated to showcasing rising artists from around the world. The gallery moves regularly between genres to expose and celebrate the original work of craftspeople and artistic visionaries whose conceptual and technical narratives help bring a fresh perspective to the canon. The artwork is brought to light through pop-up shows, performances, public interventions, and traditional exhibitions held in the gallery's uptown space in Hamilton Heights.
New York City Audubon champions nature in the City’s five boroughs through a combination of engaging and entertaining programs and innovative conservation campaigns. NYC Audubon is an independent non-profit organization affiliated with the National Audubon Society. Through its efforts, NYC Audubon protects many species of birds living in the 30,000 acres of wetlands, forests, and grasslands of New York City.
Parks & Recreation has consistently fostered the creation and installation of temporary public art in parks throughout the five boroughs. Through collaborations with a diverse group of arts organizations and artists, we bring to the public both experimental and traditional art in many park locations. The works may be displayed in prominent flagship parks, neighborhood parks and playgrounds, and traffic islands. Temporary installations are defined by an exhibition period of less than one year, typically remaining on view for three to six months.
