Sunset Ritual & Cadence Closing
MAY 21 & 22, 2016
Our closing weekend aligned with two special events–one local, one cosmic: The Long Island City Open Studios and Buddha’s Birthday, aka Vesak.
The historical Buddha was born into the SHAKYA, aka Lion, clan. Only fitting that ANJL showed up and, in two days of aerosol, gifted us with the Lion of Queens.
On the weekend, art explorers discovered our mural gallery during the days. Saturday eve, we hosted a salon style closing with poets of dance and voice, wine & hors d’oeurves by Professor O’Connor, low-fi audio by PLAN 23 and a sunset meditation offering up the month’s works to the city muses and universe-at-large. Full bill below.
To the creators, community activators & the birth of all to come…
May 21 Saturday, 6 to 9 PM, Sunset @ 8:12.
