LIC is a Galaxy
This unique and evolving installation on view this spring celebrates the idea that Long Island City is a galaxy, both diverse and unified. Whether you live and work in LIC, or are just visiting our galaxy, we encourage you to bundle up and travel to all twenty “planets” placed in tree pits throughout the district.
Twenty fiberglass spheres were manufactured by LIC-based fabricator, Sculpture House NYC. Five Queens-based artists were selected through an open call from Culture Lab LIC and commissioned to design and paint four planets each, with twenty total spheres representing our galaxy.
The spheres are grouped by artist at the following locations:
Kerri Boccard: Queens Plaza North between 27th and 28th St in front of the JetBlue building
Bonnie Astor: Jackson Avenue and 44th Drive in front of the Altice Building (former Citi Building)
Kaiser Kamal: Jackson Avenue and 23rd Street near the Court Square Subway Station entrance
Karen Fitzgerald: West side of Vernon Blvd and 46th Avenue, across the street from the LIC Bar
Elinore Schnurr: South side of 44th Drive between 11th and Vernon right near Brickhouse Ceramics
This project was made possible by the generous support of the Long Island Board of REALTORS®. LIC is a Galaxy represents a partnership with Eventscape, a custom Architectural Fabrication firm in LIC, and Culture Lab LIC, an arts non-profit run out of Plaxall Gallery. Our LIC public realm arts projects are also made possible through the support of Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer.
So happy to provide space to our community for the Holi Festival of Colors!
Bye-bye winter, and hello spring!
Here's to divine love & the triumph of good over evil!
Edjo Wheeler and Asa Peller, working hard to get our parking lot ready for live music & events on May 1st!
See you soon, everyone!
