THE HEIGHTS / EL ALTO is a commissioned portfolio of prints that asks visual artists who are longtime residents of the Washington Heights and Inwood neighborhoods in New York City to capture, reflect, represent, interpret, and/or process the changing population and landscape—in all its economic, social, and civic complexity—of Washington Heights/Inwood today. Washington Heights/Inwood has been the site of immigration—and attendant real estate turmoil—ever since Mannahatta was purchased from the Lenape in what is now Inwood Hill Park. For decades, urgent conversations have taken place around housing, socioeconomics, race and ethnicity, city infrastructure and preservation, and displacement and change—dialogues that became all the more constant leading up to the ratification in 2018 of the City’s plan to rezone Inwood. The Heights/El Alto contributes an artistic response to this neighborhood-wide—and citywide/nationwide/global—issue.

The Heights/El Alto is organized by Realengo Studio and Word Up Community Bookshop/Librería Comunitaria, and made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and administered by LMCC.
