New York City artist brings a touch of Harlem to the Garment District
Garment District Space for Public Art presents unique paintings by artist DA Aschbacher.


NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance announced the latest in its ongoing series of public art exhibits, showcasing a series entitled Harlem in Real Time, created by Harlem artist DA Aschbacher.

Located in a street-level window at 215 West 38th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through March 10th. Harlem in Real Time is part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations throughout the year and has produced more than 200 installations, exhibits and performances.

“DA Aschbacher’s artwork offers a unique perspective on newsworthy issues through a series of thought-provoking paintings,” said Barbara A. Blair, president of the Garment District Alliance. “Harlem in Real Time is a display of raw artwork highlighting poignant social issues and we are thrilled to showcase this talented artist through the Garment District Space for Public Art program.”

With the Harlem neighborhood and its residents serving as her inspiration, Aschbacher’s Harlem in Real Time draws on the social realism of German and American expressionists. Focusing on women’s issues and rights, she also gathers inspiration for her work through various news media sources and utilizes photographs as a basis for her paintings. The result is a pictorial solution of taking information apart and piecing it back together through striking black and white canvas paintings.

Based in New York, Aschbacher is a contemporary figurative expressionist painter working in social realism. She has showcased her work in solo and group exhibitions in venues across New York City, Chicago and Michigan. Aschbacher earned her post-graduate degree from the Columbia University School of the Arts, her master’s degree from New York University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The Garment District is home to thousands of people working in the creative economy, including fine and performing artists, designers, architects, photographers and more than a hundred theaters, galleries, performance spaces and studios.
