The Africa Center

The Africa Center

1280 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

The Africa Center, situated at the intersection of Harlem and the Museum Mile, makes a meaningful architectural statement aided by the Sign Expo® color burst graphics. Sign Expo fabricated and installed custom contour cut graphics on 51 windows, including the ground level and second level windows. On the inside of the Africa Center, opaque graphics installed on five multi panel doors give continuity to the interior space. Sign Expo worked within the construction schedule, installing into the late hours to meet the deadlines.

The Africa Center’s receptive, flexible, and expansive structure with bold graphics embody the dynamism and diversity of Africa and its Diaspora in the heart of New York City. Since opening in January 2019, The Africa Center has already attracted and engaged thousands of visitors in a series of thought provoking public programs.

The graphic decals are durable for many years, yet easily removed and replaced. The decals allow The Africa Center to be visibly responsive to the events effecting the community.
