Dwyer Cultural Center

Lonely Planet review

The brand-new, $3-million, 7000-sq-ft Dwyer is the latest player in a new cultural renaissance here. The permanent home to a previously traveling exhibit, ‘Harlem Is…, ’ featuring large-scale portraits and video montages, this is also the new uptown destination for jazz and blues concerts, dance performances, artist talks, film screenings and rotating exhibits, like the inaugural ‘Harlem Sewn Up 2009: Quilted Reflections of a Community.’
