Female BIPOC artwork at Queens Botanical Garden
Time Out says
Six Queens-based female artists of colorr were selected to creat site-specific art installations throughout the grounds of Queens Botanical Garden, which are now on view. You'll see a brightly-colored mixed media rose garden, a work made of color transparencies that project shadows on the ground, a large cyanotype paper flower surrounded by smaller cyanotype ferns, and tags with information honoring the many women that have met violent endings at the hands of a loved one, sculptural rocks made of abstract paintings on Mylar and a large painting along the skylight railing, a fanciful "Rabbit's Storytelling Throne," made largely from recycled and salvaged materials, paying homage to QBG’s landfill history, and a portrait of feminist and advocate, Marielle Franco, who was murdered in 2018 while returning from a speech. They'll be up through September 8.
