Fantasy In Color is an Artists Collective based in New York city. We have organized and curated monthly Art events in Harlem since 2014. We produce Pop-Up style Exhibitions that showcase some of NYC’s best Visual and Performing Artists. We coined the phrase “Art Party” which has really become a popular term in the underground scene. Our events usually consists of 20 to 30 Visual Artists, displaying all mediums; Paintings Photography, Digital Art etc. Performing Artists are a major part of our events as well. We normally highlight 2 to 3 performers at each event. Singers, Poets, Rappers and Dancers have been known to grace the stage, with electrifying performance. Another element of our Art Party is Vendors. We typically have 4 to 10 at each event. Jewelry makers, clothing designers and bakers are some of the Vendors we have in attendance. Overall we provide a place to network and grow as an Artists. It’s so important to be around like minded people. Our mission was to create a platform for all creatives, while establishing a positive and supportive environment. We are happy to say, the mission was accomplished.
