Art Swap to support Animal Rescue of Queens

May 2, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| Free
ARQflyer

A free, fun, participatory art event to build community and support for a new no-kill animal shelter/adoption center in LIC Queens:
Animal Rescue of Queens (ARQ) – learn more about ARQ here -> http://ARQadopt.org/

Give Art = Get Art. Mix and Mingle. Have Fun!

HOW IT WORKS:
1) Make/bring a piece of original art – exercise your creative muscle – we’re all artists of our own lives, so make it special and let it shine!
2) The art goes up on the wall and gets a number
3) That number goes in a hat
4) At the end of the party, everyone who brought art takes a number from the hat and takes home the corresponding numbered artwork

Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate, whether you’ve made “art” before or not – all forms of self-expression are welcome. Drawing. Painting. Collage. Prose. Poetry. Photos. Mixtapes. Jewelry. Textiles. Ceramics. Glass. Sock monkey sculptures. Decorated ukeleles. The sky’s the limit!

Please share widely with anyone who would be interested in participating!

Bring some of your favorite snacks and beverages to share. Lagunitas has provided some beer to prime the pump.

It’s free to attend/participate. The event space is big, open and beautiful with big skylights, perfect for showcasing everyone’s creativity and exchange. Monetary donations to support ARQ will be gratefully accepted throughout the day. In the weeks after this event, ARQ will begin building its unique animal shelter into the space, so every donation helps.

Yes, friendly pets and children are allowed to attend!!!
