THANK YOU TO ALL SUPPORTERS

On February 15, Queens Council on the Arts celebrated the borough’s artistry at the Knockdown Center during a gala inspired by the Caribbean Carnival tradition. This year we honored 4 accomplished members of the Queens community. NYC Council member Jimmy Van Bramer of the 26th district received the inaugural Cultural Equity Champion Award. We also honored Sheila Lewandowski, Executive Director of The Chocolate Factory, Lysa Scully, General Manager of LaGuardia Airport and Aki Todic, President of AKI Development real estate. Our guests experienced lively entertainment including limbo dancing, stilt walkers, music, dancers and sketch artists. Proceeds will benefit QCA’s Emerging Artist Fund, to support artists and cultural leaders in Queens. For more images click HERE.
