Harlem Collective’s Growing Community of Artists

Who knew?

Hidden from view above a mosque and a collection of Halal fast food shops on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Floor4Art is home to more than a dozen artists who paint, sculpt and work in mixed media.

Norma Marquez Orozco opened the space in 2008. She was concerned that landlords, keen to capitalize on the growing buzz for the Harlem art scene, were hiking rents.

“They’ve seen the potential and become greedy because they know that they can make these empty spaces very expensive,” she said.

Painter Camille Hoffman moved to Floor4Art in August. ”It’s so inspiring to live here now and exciting to be in the same space,” she said. “There’s a real energy building up that will be here for years to come.”
