LIC Walking Art Tour! Let us help you find a wall!

We will be holding an open call for muralists and street artists to submit proposals for multiple buildings around LIC, and we will be starting with our very own building: The Plaxall Gallery! Our city needs art now more than ever, and we want to partner with you to make it happen. 

In the next few weeks Culture Lab will provide images of participating buildings and preferred themes and open up a call for submissions. There will be some pay, as well as documentation in video and stills provided for further publicity and exposure. We will be announcing submission details soon, but in the meantime sign up for our Muralists Database: 

INSTALL DATES: Mural installation is planned to take place during the quarantine. We will make sure proper social distancing is followed to  protect you.



Please e-mail with any questions.

LIC-A Open Call for Art: "Drawings in a Time of Social Distancing"

This is a call for submissions of recent drawings by artists from throughout New York City.  Drawings should be completed during this period of confinement, and all approaches to drawing are welcome.

Your theme can be anything that speaks to you in this Time of Social Distancing: views out your window, an interior still life, portraits of family and friends, a thank you to essential workers, drawings of plants/flowers, outdoor sketches, moody drawings, happy drawings, dreamscapes, whatever inspires you!
