SPAHA SALSA GALLERY
WHO WE ARE
A Distinct Identity
The Spanish Harlem Salsa Gallery is a cultural institution committed to
providing residents of East Harlem and surrounding communities with structured, scholarly, cultural programming, information, resources, and learning initiatives. As inclusive and diverse as the salsa music represented within these walls, the Gallery provides a community-friendly, accessible, and arts education-centered space.
As a strategic community partner, we provide a cultural resource for the surrounding museums and institutions on Museum Mile as well as the many community based organizations serving East Harlem, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens and other regions, as well as tourists visiting New York, that have expressed interest in knowing the roots of salsa.
Undeserved communities such as seniors, teens, homeless, mentally challenged, LGBTQ, and others will find the Gallery a sanctuary of cultural history and a repository for
information on salsa music and its artists.
