THANK YOU TO ALL SUPPORTERS
On February 16, Queens Council on the Arts celebrated the borough’s artistry at the Knockdown Center during a gala inspired by the Venetian carnival tradition. We honored renowned honorees, sculptor Joel Shapiro and photographer Tony Vaccaro. Our guests experienced lively entertainment including casino games, music, dancers and sketch artists. Proceeds will benefit QCA’s Emerging Artist Fund, to support artists and cultural leaders in Queens.
