Queens Botanical Garden

4pm Performance, 5pm Reception
Online Registration is now closed. Please register at the door.
On Sunday, September 15th 2019, electronic music artist and technologist Claire Marie Lim (a.k.a. dolltr!ck) will present a live performance of Colors of Us, an album of new music created with female-identifying youth of Asian descent in Queens. Inspired by the emotions and experiences of young Asian and Asian-American people with ties to the Queens borough, "Colors of Us" offers insight into the creativity of youth in the community, and sheds light on the unique realities that they live as individuals between multiple cultures.
This show is the World Premiere and culminating presentation of Lim's work as the Queens Council on the Arts’s Artist Commissioning Program 2018-2019 awardee for music composition. Free and open to the public upon registration, the show will run for approximately one hour with a reception to follow.
Prior to the World Premiere, there will be a listening party on Saturday, August 24th to preview the album's songs. More information on the listening party available here.
About the Artist Commissioning Program
Designed to democratize the traditional commissioning process, the Artist Commissioning Program (ACP) enables local community members, or “Art Producers” to award Queens choreographers, playwrights, and composers $10,000 towards the creation of new, original work that fills gaps in American culture by telling an untold story.

The Artist Commissioning Program (ACP) is made possible by generous funding from the Scherman Foundation as well as supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
