Antonia Perez, Visual Artist

"I've always believed that artists need to connect to the public and QCA is a wonderful way to do it." 

Antonia has crocheted over 400 plastic bags over lampshade frames to create a sculptural piece that provides pedestrians an unexpected pop of color as they walk by the hanging sculpture.

The artwork was created for the Lewis Latimer House through a Queens Art Fund Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts.

$3,000 pays for one artist and community partnership project. Maybe you can give that on your own today and brighten the lives of a group of people. Maybe 10 people can contribute and make donations of $30 apiece.

Every dollar we raise can transform your daily life into a creative experience, one artist, one project at a time.
