It was so exciting to receive a New Work Grant from The Queens Council on the Arts! I did a 1 month pop-up / open studio in the heart of Jackson Heights. I created a new body of work and after a month, had a show at my beloved cafe; Espresso 77. 
 
This project was made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
 
More about this on the Facebook event  page.
 
Here is a run-down on what happened:

I was able to get almost the entire pop-up into my Subaru. After I unpacked and created some hygge, I opened the door to the public. I was there every morning at 8 and I offered free coffee to commuters. I met so many great people, from all walks of life.
