Queens Art Intervention: Dwelling
Dec 11 2017-Jan 19 2018

Four years ago Yvonne had the idea of sharing some of her funding with other artists to create more impact in more places in Queens. Queens Art Intervention, QAI for short, was born.

QAI consists of artistic interventions that happen between the artist and the community every September over one or two weekends. This December, QAI 2017 is going from the streets of Queens to the Queens Museum.

The interventions are commissioned and based on Yvonne's Fellowship project, Women Who Build-Artists Who Own. The project included a collaborative design and build of a mobile tiny house that upon completion was transformed into a tea and Zen garden catalyzing conversations around feminine dwelling.

The Museum exhibition will highlight the research project and commissioned interventions with interactive installations that extend the work, impact, and longevity beyond the streets of Queens.

Saturday December 16 from 2-4pm: Opening Reception & Dialogue
Saturday, January 6th from 12-4 there will be several workshops at the Queens Museum presented by the QAI community.
