THANK YOU! WHAT AN EVENING!

The Future Perfect Ball was a breakthrough event for No Longer Empty.

With the support of the extended NLE family, we are able to continue curating the bold, unconventional projects and exhibitions for which we are known; and to grow our education programs to serve more teens than ever.

Between the opening of Mel Chin: All Over the Place last Sunday; and this incredible benefit evening; the many upcoming programs being held in Queens at the Inaugural Southeast Queens Biennial (Closing April 21)and our Young Exhibition Makers collaborating together this spring at Kings County Hospital is East Flatbush, Brooklyn—it is an exciting time for No Longer Empty and our extended network of friends and art-lovers!

We are grateful that you are along on the ride with us! See you this summer to behold some groundbreaking works of Mel Chin in Times Square!

With gratitude,

Manon, Carol, Rachel, Raquel, Mica, and Julia
The Team at No Longer Empty
