Uptown Bounce: Icons of the '80s

What: Join the Museum of the City of New York and El Museo Del Barrio for our free summer block party series celebrating East Harlem at the top of Museum Mile. 

At the Museum of the City of New York:
Celebrate the decade when hair was big, fashion was bold, and pop superstars reigned in this tribute to late great musical legends Whitney Houston, David Bowie, and George Michael.
At El Museo del Barrio:
El Museo is bringing positive “palo” energy to Uptown Bounce! Rooted in Africa's Congo region and later brought to the Caribbean, the “palo” (stick) was created and used to reinforce the power of the Congo spirits.
  • Create your very own "palo" embedded with the energy to bring positive change in unity.
  • DJ Bembona will spin some Latinx & Afro-Diasporadical sounds.
When: Wednesday, August 2, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Cost: Free with Registration
