SculptureCenter's LIC BLOCK PARTY Set for 9/8

SculptureCenter has announced the first LIC Block Party, presented with the Purves Street Block Association. The LIC Block Party features artist-led activity tents, a stage with live music and interactive performances, and a community-built, large-scale temporary sculpture. Within SculptureCenter's expansive galleries, guests will find the Artist Market with a selection of the best affordable and functional art and objects, and a family-friendly food court with food by local restaurants. 

Activity tents include: Tarot readings with Jesse van Buren, pom-pom making with Abby Walton and Travis Boyer, Cubist face painting with Stephanie Dodes, carnival games with Lior Shvil, discover your inner child with Jacques Louis Vidal, balloon activities with Ross Moreno, ask a lawyer withThe Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (VLA), Elastic City neighborhood walks with Ben Weber, wondrous disguises and costumes with HiChristina! and clean your pennies with the Clean Penny Service. Free Style Art will lead block party guests in building a large-scale temporary sculpture inspired by the changing architectural landscape of Long Island City. 

Artist Jennifer Sullivan will emcee a music and performance program featuring the all female mariachi group Mariachi Flor de Toloache, The Kate Bush Dance Troupe, Queens Jazz Overground, and Neal Medlyn, as well as a Fitness Intermission presented by the Long Island City YMCA. Take a break from the block party and participate in a Masala Bhangra Workout® dance routine that modernizes the high-energy folk dance of Bhangra with the exhilaration of Bollywood movies. Wind down with special late afternoon DJ sets by DJ JAR JAR WATTVR aka Jory Rabinovitz and Jesse Hlebo. 

SculptureCenter has invited a selection of artists to sell their art and objects to the public and providing the artists the opportunity to take one hundred percent of their proceeds.
