About the Harlem Fine Arts Show:
Presented by JWD Enterprises, Inc. and launched in 2009 at the 369th Armory in New York City, the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) has more than 10,000 visitors each year. The event, currently housed at the historic Riverside Church in New York City, attracts a diverse audience from New York City and the tri-state area representing the cultural mosaic of artists, collectors, art enthusiasts, educators, students and professionals. The show runs from February 7 – 10, 2013, with a salute to the late Honorable Percy E. Sutton, one of Harlem’s most prominent political, civil rights, and business leaders kicking off on February 7. This year, HFAS expands to a four-day exposition and will include a series of events and activities. All of the events will take place at 91 Claremont Avenue (between 121st and 122nd Streets) in Harlem.
