Artists UNO and Cheon Pyo Lee will create an interactive yet personal project of remembrance and artistic expression that can derive from the experience of a broken heart. Participants will be invited to describe and draw their story of heartbreak while exploring how memories are shaped in words and can be transferred through physical gestures and art. The program is open to adults and older adults. Registration is required. Please contact Richard.J.Lee@queenslibrary.org to reserve your spot.
Queens Memory events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. For additional information, contact us.
