Description

No Longer Empty (NLE) is excited to announce ART ZONE CG-91, an art space, community data lab, and exhibition at NYC Health + Hospitals | Kings County. ART ZONE CG-91 opens Friday, June 23, 5-7pm, with a soft launch gathering with artists, youth leaders and staff, and runs through Sunday, July 30.

ART ZONE CG-91 takes place in a former emergency waiting room on the Kings County Hospital Campus, where NLE is hosting several art activities and an exhibition. Over the course of June and July, artists Shervone Neckles and Ezra Wube will install artworks in and around CG-91 reflecting community narratives, dreams, and desires. In July, local residents will work with social designer Manolo Ampudia and Education & Public Engagement Fellow Mica Le John to create an interactive installation that uses art as a cultural resource. ART ZONE CG-91 is organized by Sara Guerrero, Rachel Gugelberger, and Manon Slome. 

Starting in July, NLE will host free art tours and workshops for all ages in CG-91, as well as a community art & data lab to ask residents from surrounding neighborhoods about their dreams and desires relating to community wellness and art. A group of local high school students and seniors will help run the summer programs and participate in the art & data lab. School groups, senior groups and summer camps can request a special visit with a free tour and workshop: contact sara@nolongerempty.org.
