Flushing Town Hall is currently taking the term “public art” very literally with its new Call and Response: Grief, Resiliency and Hope exhibit. Functioning as an ongoing dialogue, the installation is asking anyone to create their own pieces of art to display on the fences outside of the building, so long as it matches the general themes stated in the title. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the larger fight for racial justice, the exhibit aims to have the community reflect on these events together.

The families, professional artists, and amateurs are all invited to create artistic expressions of grief, resiliency, and hope to share in the exhibit. To help aid in the creative process, free art kits will be available for pick up on-site at Flushing Town Hall from 10 am to 3 pm on August 11 through August 13. Details about submissions are available on the Flushing Town Hall website.
