I saw this vibrant mural on the side of the Police Athletic League (PAL) on the west side of Harlem a few weeks ago while headed to pick up some items I found in a Craigslist ad.
I just had to stop and understand what was happening in this mural. There’s a trumpet-playing man popping out of a phonograph, and it appears that the sound he’s producing sounds like swirls and flowers?
Basically summer in NYC during the Harlem Renaissance.
The mural, called “Art of Jazz,” was done by Creative Art Works. Learn more at www.creativeartworks.org.
