Long Island City has more art galleries per capita than anywhere else in New York City. Since 2011, The LIC Arts Open has galvanized artists, residents, community and government officials, by profiling the vibrancy of the artistic community in Queens. Their 5th annual festival commences tonight!
What does this mean for you? FUN. A kick off party is happening NOW at The Local. The fun starts tonight and goes straight through Sunday. In the days to come, much of the neighborhood takes part with their restaurants and stores acting as temporary galleries. Check out their comprehensive festival guide and participating venues.
