Brendan Kiely is a current artist-in-residence at LMCC Arts Center. Brendan was also a Process Space resident in 2017, where he began one of the novels that he is working on today. Brendan is working on a young adult novel set in the future where a rise in sea level destroys the city of New York.
Brendan seeks to engage young readers with the difficult narrative of a future within a global climate crisis. Situated alongside the NYC Harbor, the artist studios at LMCC's Arts Center serve as inspiration and resource to Brendan's artistic process.
LMCC's Arts Center artists-in-residence are exploring themes of social justice/social practice, NYC Harbor, Governors Island history, and climate change.
