People often say that it takes at least 15 years to make an organization grow and mature. The not- for- profit WAH Center (Williamsburg Art & Historical Center) took 16 years to come this far while learning many lessons along the way.
  
The WAH Center has endeavored to fulfill the founder’s “Bridge Concept” - the idea of which is to coalesce diverse artistic   communities and create a global bridge with emerging and established artists of all disciplines. We hope that our programs have inspired, educated and entertained the public at large, and we wish to express our sincere thanks to those kind supporters who had faith in the WAH Center’s unique mission and helped us grow. All of the noble ideas of "WAH" will be reminded, for WAH in Japanese means  "Peace, Harmony and Unity.”

So, this fall we celebrate what the WAH Center has cultivated over the years and also what nature has provided in the harvest. Housed in a New York City and National Landmark, the WAH Center will offer this fall not only a fine art show but also a Gala Dinner and various performance programs for The Sweet 16th Anniversary Harvest Celebration. In this spirit, our Grand Harvest provides an opportunity for outstanding artists to showcase work to new audiences in Williamsburg, a prominent art community in Brooklyn, New York and to national and international visitors from around the world.

Theme: Celebrating the WAH’s harvest of “produce” by artists and the achievements of the WAH Center. Plus, how do artists envision the greening or re-greening of the world? What technologies do artists envision to assure the crops and foods for tomorrow from earth and sea? What harvest can you bring to share this autumn?

Letter of congratulations from Brooklyn Burrough President Marty Markowitz our Sweet 16th Anniversary
