Artist Shervone Neckles’ installation Beacon Sails affirms the Lewis Latimer House Museum’s sense of place and belonging within the Flushing and greater Queens community, and honors the “groundbreaking” lifework of inventor Lewis H. Latimer. The outdoor installation features two triangular-shaped shade sails which functions as a focal point to attract the local public and serve as a locator for visitors.
Join us for the opening reception on June 22 and hear the artist talk about this work. Refreshments will be served. Free to the public, RSVP required.
This exhibition is made possible in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. It is part of NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program.
