Rendering of Faith Ringgold Children’s Museum

Non-profit Group Broadway Housing Communities is joining forces with Harlem-born artist Faith Ringgold to create a children’s museum in the base of a building perched on Coogan’s Bluff at 155th Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue in Sugar Hill, Crain’s reported. The group plans to break ground on the Harlem project later this month, and open in 2012. It still has to get its plans — which include 124 units of affordable housing — approved by the City Council, where a hearing is scheduled for Oct. 13. The museum, to be called the Faith Ringgold Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling, would occupy 18,000 square feet, and include a performance space, a library, a store and a café. The total project is budgeted at $70 million, most of which has been raised. The building was designed by British architect David Adjaye, who designed the Denver Museum of Art. [Crain’s]
