Kenkeleba House & Wilmer Jennings Gallery: Spotlight on Diversity

Diversity isn’t just a buzzword in the East Village — it’s a lifeline. The Kenkeleba House and Wilmer Jennings Gallery have stood the test of time, giving the stage to artists whose voices often get lost in the crowd. From riveting sculptures to soulful paintings, every piece tells a story. Check out their current exhibit, “Exploring Conceptual Possibilities,” which runs until September and was created by Adjoa Burrowes, Carl Hazlewood, Algernon Miller, Lisette Morel, and Danielle Scott.

Saviana Arts: The Nuyorican Pulse

The brainchild of Sara Morales and Vivian Lipman-Denis, Saviana Arts is a love letter to Nuyorican art. It’s a fusion of Puerto Rican soul with New York swagger, showcasing works by Morales and Lipman-Denis, artists who have their roots deep in both worlds. Check out some of their best pieces, like “Caminito,” “Los Dominos de Juan,” “Anticipacion,” and “Reflejo.”
