Beginning today, there’s a new community-focused art exhibition in Seward Park. Here’s the Facebook invite:

We invite local residents and immigrants to the launch of the trilingual newspaper project, Round Robin, in Seward Park with resident artists Art Parley, an art collective formed by Sue Jeong Ka and Mélissa Emily Liu! Come by during Art Parley’s Open Studio hours to learn about the next six weeks of activities and workshops around Round Robin, an ongoing socially-engaged project to build spaces for cross-cultural solidarity and understanding through storytelling, conversation, and empathy resonant to participants from diasporic communities in #Chinatown, #LES, and #TwoBridges. The Round Robin Neighborhood Archive and Library will be available during all Open Studio hours, activities, and workshops. Come read the first ever trilingual issues of Round Robin along with other collected materials related to issues of immigration and gentrification.

You can visit the mobile studio, set up in front of the Seward Park Library, today from 3-9 p.m. It will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as well as weekends (noon-6 p.m.) through Aug. 15.

The program is a collaboration among ArtBuilt, the Queens Museum and the NYC Parks Department. Local partners include the Seward Park Conservancy and Immigrant Social Services.
