FWCC renews its commitment to artistic expression at our corner location of 729 W. 181st and Ft. Washington Avenue, with a three-day art exhibit and fundraiser.  The exhibit's mission is to support the community based arts and youth programs in the heart of Washington Heights/Inwood that we offer to all.

We believe that art and creative expression are the cornerstones of a productive society, and that by working together, we all benefit in the partnership of  "Grace-Diversity-Community."

The Salon Hang: “Grace – Diversity – Community” will be held on Friday, October 13th, Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th, 2017 at our elegant newly opened glass pavilion. All are welcome. (See our complete list of Arts and Youth Programs.)
