Time: 2:30- 4:30 pm
Where: The corner of Court Square and Jackson Avenue in Court Square Park, E/M/G/7 at Court Square
RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/pjp6g2h

Join ELNYA in celebrating the life and work of Jane Jacobs as we walk from Long Island City to Astoria discussing the role of public art in a changing New York. On this walk, we’ll discuss the future of public art in a New York City where condos and mixed-use buildings are quickly replacing the landmarks that have made art an entity of the people.

We’ll meet in Court Square Park, at  the corner of Court Square and Jackson Avenue. From there, we’ll make our way through Long Island City, stopping at the former location of 5 Pointz and MoMA PS1 as we make our way to Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria.
