CREATIVE MOSAIC

Artists Working in Queens

A juried exhibition curated by Osman Can Yerebakan, conceived and developed by Carol Crawford

LIC–A’s aim is to increase awareness and appreciation of the richly diverse art produced throughout Queens.

 

Included will be a continuous digital presentation with images of participating artists in their studios and workshops, describing how the growth of art studios and the presence of artists in every area of Queens has enriched all aspects of community life wherever they occur.

 

An 'Artist Talk' event has been scheduled for Sunday October 13, 2-5pm,  to enable conversation and connection between the artists and community residents  and businesses. 

 

We also plan to create a video documentary on the various arts groups we connect with in the Borough.
