Join the Long Island City Cultural Alliance (LICCA) for its first Art Stroll of 2016 on Sunday, May 15th. This very special walking tour features guided tours of street art and graffiti, led by Welling Court Mural Project; Socrates Sculpture Park’s 30th anniversary exhibition, LANDMARK; and The Noguchi Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony.
The stroll will begin with a tour of the vibrant street art and graffiti around 30th Avenue and Welling Court, led by Ad Hoc Art curator and Welling Court Mural Project organizer Garrison Buxton. From there the group will move south towards Socrates Sculpture Park for a guided tour of LANDMARK, a series of 8 artist commissions and projects that transform the land of the park both physically and symbolically. We will then cross Vernon Boulevard to tour The Noguchi Museum’s current exhibition Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony. This major exhibition is the first at the Museum to present work by a single artist other than Noguchi himself. The tour will be followed by a matcha making demonstration using Tom Sachs’ tea utensils.
