At Harwood Art Center, we continue to adhere to and implement expert public health and safety advisories, and in alignment with our parent organization Escuela del Sol, all of which now direct limiting social gathering in order to limit the acceleration of COVID-19.
As such, Harwood Art Center is closed to the public until further notice. While our campus is closed, our programs stay open. Stay tuned for adapted ways to engage!


WHAT DO YOU WANT NOW?! is a body of work that visually deciphers André Ramos-Woodard’s personal experiences in an attempt to understand and cope with them. The installation is an assemblage fusing works on paper with art drawn directly on the wall. Ramos-Woodard is interested in exploring the dissonance created by this process to discover what it means to exist in this world as a unique individual yet influenced by the prejudices and reality of the world around us.

Aryon’ Hopkin’s work is rooted in community building. He is interested in creating third place —the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home and the workplace. Aryon has adapted his work and created Share Our Sun, a virtual celebration during our shared season of Spring of our world’s last remaining third place, the sky above us.
