Artifact and Fantasy is a community art project and exhibition that allows for residents of Ridgewood, Queens –including older adults, students in local public schools, families that recently emigrated, and artists/entrepreneurs– to come together and embrace their diversity.

On view:

Friday, January 27, 6-8pm

Saturday, January 28, 12-6pm 

Through multi-disciplinary workshops, participants investigate and respond to a select group of objects culled from the renovation of a 100-year old house in Ridgewood. These collaborators will construct a shared narrative in the form of written responses, drawings, sculptures and videos; part memory, part history, and part fantasy.

The final exhibition is evidence of their collective experience, carefully arranged and combined to form an installation that immerses the viewer in a rich, complex portrait of a community.
