The new Sugar Hill Apartment complex in Harlem, which includes more than 100 units for low-income and homeless people, is readying for occupancy in August. Ahead of its opening, it will be the stage for an “ambitious” group exhibition of contemporary artists, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The organization behind Sugar Hill is Broadway Housing Communities, a nonprofit founded by Ellen Baxter ’75 in 1983 to provide affordable housing to New Yorkers. Broadway Housing invited an arts organization to install an art show at Sugar Hill that reflected the neighborhood. This organization, No Longer Empty, specializes in staging exhibitions in places that rarely see contemporary art.
