Black Dimensions in Art recreates history from Harlem to Albany
Black Dimensions in Art organized and gathered creatives of the African diaspora to recreate the iconic 1958 photo “A Great Day in Harlem.” The group has been celebrating and supporting black artists for nearly 50 years and organized the recreated photo at the Stephen and Harriet Myers residence in Arbor Hill.
The original photograph was captured by Art Kane in Harlem, showcasing jazz musicians. Since then, the photo has been reenacted many times and now by Black creatives of the Capital Region.
