Congratulations to Seward Park’s newest artist-in-residence!
Many congratulations go to the artist collective Art Parley (Sue Jeong Ka and Melissa Liu), this summer’s Studio in the Park artist-in-residence in Seward Park! From July 1 to August 15, Art Parley will use a 150 square foot mobile studio space to explore the 2018 residency themes of immigration, neighborhood change, and cultural heritage through their ongoing, socially-engaged project Round Robin, which started as a free trilingual newspaper in Chinese, English, and Spanish. This summer, the Round Robin newspaper will come to life in the form of a collaborative forum for self-empowered leadership, cross cultural solidarity, and language access. Art Parley invites all immigrants and local residents to participate in this forum through in-person summer workshops to create a network of communication channels and platform involving creative forms of expression in the LES/Two Bridges/Chinatown neighborhoods.
