A Little Gift from LMCC


A Little Gift from LMCC

In gratitude, we have put together a virtual care package for you that highlights some of the efforts LMCC’s artists and friends are working on. Inside, you'll find touching expressions of outreach and support. Whatever your mood or mindset, we hope you’ll learn something new from our artists as they practice and share their work from home.

Beatrice GlowWorkspace 2019-2020 created an artists’ guide to working from home: Dear Artists #WFH. a resource geared towards self-care and time management.

According to Beatrice, "I am sharing my experience of working mostly from home in hopes that this resource may help stabilize this challenging time so that you can continue to do your amazing work of uplifting broader communities, while still taking good care of yourselves in the process."

Several artists have created personal protective equipment (PPE) at home, including Beatrice Glow and Christine Wong Yap, Workspace 2019-2020 and Liz Sargent, co-producer of 2019 film, Slow Down: River To River.

Liz created a maskmaking video with Margaret Cam, owner of CamCam, who has retrofitted her small clothing company to make masks.

Margaret is using the proceeds to help employ seamstresses to sew masks for donations. The company is specifically aimed to support hospitals, homeless shelters and smaller organizations that are the most vulnerable communities in the pandemic.

CamCam is a small team and is in need of more seamstresses of all skill levels. Work is PAID to help push money back into the economy. Please contact margaret@camcam.nyc if you’d like to join!


LMCC Arts Center Artist Michael Wang was featured in Art in America, The Architect's Newspaper, and Berlin Art Link. In these interviews, he speaks about modeling climate change through his work, particularly in his exhibition at LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island, Extinct in New York.

Michael's work may inspire you to Build Your Own Tony Greenhouse with GrowNYC, our neighbors on Governors Island.

SU-CASA artist Laura Nova was connected with a Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC) Senior Center at Phipps Plaza in Kips Bay, where she started teaching a storytelling and radio arts class called "Hear Here". Due to the quarantine, she invited volunteers mostly from the performing arts community to be matched with an elder and have weekly conversations guided by a list of topics, to ask the elder expert advice, essentially what’s worth knowing. You can read more in this best practices document.

Laura is also offering the group weekly telephoned creative calls "Tune-in Tuesday" at 4pm (a dial-in musical concert and conversation with an artist) and "Finally Friday" at noon (a dial-in offering of conversation, interactive activities, and company).
