Our Story


For over a year, artist Mira Gandy has been creating an

Arts organization that would serve as a legacy to her mother, 

Tony award-winning producer/publicist Irene Gandy. 

In March 2020, Covid-19 invaded the world and everything was put on PAUSE. Mira moved from her apartment in Harlem to her mother's Greenwich Village home to ensure that Irene was taken care of while sheltering in place. As the weeks of quarantine turned into months, it became clear that amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic that the arts were needed now more than ever and it was time to launch The Gandy Art House to provide a space to help people build connection through creativity.
