NEW YORK (AP) - The Studio Museum is expanding its reach into the community with four public art installations at four Harlem parks.

They include three structures by Simone Leigh in Marcus Garvey Park that were inspired by thatched kitchen houses in Zimbabwe.

Artist Kevin Beasley has three large dish-like sculptures in Morningside Park featuring colors of the Pan-African flag that invite people to project sound into them.

Kori Newkirk created frames with translucent curtains high over a set of steps in St. Nicholas Park.

Rudy Shepard’s large sculpture form with outstretched arms in Jackie Robinson Park is made of colored concrete and invites people to step inside.

The site-specific projects are part of a new initiative designed to bring art beyond the museum’s walls. They’re on view through July 2017.
