LEIMAY Works: Qualia Gardens
6 – 7PM
The New York Restoration Project (NYRP) in partnership with the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and The Bronx Museum of the Artspresent new works by artists Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya at the Heckscher Foundation Children’s Garden in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
This month long exhibition and performance mark the third annual commission by NYRP to create new public artworks with the community for the community. Every year, LEIMAY hosts weekly donation-based community classes at its Williamsburg studio. The classes are created for all skill levels and are meant to provide an entry point into LEIMAY’s artistic practice. Students from LEIMAY’s community class, local artists, and the LEIMAY Ensemble join to create a diverse perfomance environment.
Admission is Free & Open to the Public
