Friday June 21, 2019 was the opening day celebration of a special exhibit featuring stunning artwork by older East Harlem residents at East Harlem's cultural center El Barrio’s Artspace PS109. Called Covello@PS109 Making Art Work, the installation runs from Friday June 21, 2019 – Sunday, June 30, 2019. The exhibit will feature paintings, prints, mixed media works, ceramics, and textiles created at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Center (Covello) in East Harlem. More than one hundred pieces created by seniors who take classes in Covello’s Marking Art Work program, as well as artwork by Covello’s teaching artists and both current and former artists in residence will be on display.
