Honoree Biographies:

Karen Kettering Dimit is the co-founder of LIC Arts Open and has created sculptures and installations in Long Island City for a number of years, all while bringing attention and opportunity to the local artistic community. Using methods such as stone carving and mosaic, her work explores the dualities of the human condition, and evokes a life-force all its own.

Zoë Morsette has been crafting props, sculpture, and costume for film and stage for over four decades in New York City, and LIC is her studio home. Through her illustrious career, she has worked with many productions, such as "Les Miserables", "Shrek the Musical", "Saturday Night Live", and "30 Rock".

These two prominent artists are the recipients of this year's award for "Local Legends", highlighting the special artistic community of Long Island City, and the longevity and integrity of the career artists who call LIC home.
