Closing Bell: Art Conference Coming to the Queens Museum this Summer


    Open Engagement, an annual free art conference based in Portland, is heading over to Queens! The conference, which explores different perspectives on art and social practice, will be based at the Queens Museum, with additional programming at the New York Hall of Science, Queens Theater in the Park, Immigrant Movement International, and various other locations in New York. It’ll last three days, from May 16th to May 18th, and feature open houses with NYC organizations supporting social art, keynote speakers, and collaboration between 200 artists and presenters from around the world. Best of all, the whole event will be free and open to the public. Open Engagement will announce details on programming this March.
