MASHUPS! is an event featuring new works by interdisciplinary artists from Queens. Hosted by poet and writer Audrey Dimola, MASHUPS! will showcase cross-genre collaborations between poets, writers, dancers, musicians, and visual artists. Featured artists include:
- Caitlyn Casson, Dancer
- Jacob Horstmeier, Musician
