The Southeast Queens Artist Alliance opened its mobile museum and zine library this weekend at the Colosseum Mall in Jamaica, the first stop on a summer-long tour of Queens.
The handcrafted cart carried publications and zines by local artists and community members. Their work will remain on display at The Art Like Air & Water exhibit in the Central Queens Public Library until June 30.
“Our mission is to nurture local talent and support quality cultural programming in our community, particularly in public spaces,” the SEQAA said in a statement.
After setting up shop in the Colosseum the mobile museum will also head to the Queens Book Fair on July 13 at The Harvest Room, the JAMS Festival on Aug. 2 and 3 and the Sutphin BID Street Fair on Sept. 21.
