SEQAA's (C)art Festival : Pop-up Art in the Park

Southeast Queens Artist Alliance presents the first annual (C)art Festival : Pop-up Art in the Park. Located at the King Manor Museum within Rufus King Park in Jamaica, Queens, this event is free and open to the public. Featuring artists from SEQAA and friends, you are invited to experience and engage with art (many being on mobile carts) ranging from sculpture, paper-making, painting, drawing, poetry-writing, thinking, organizing, conversation and much more.
