How do you put cash value on a 12-year successful model of community development? You don’t. So BUY A BRICK instead: LP survives.
“I chose to give back to LP because it has provided me with so much and asked for so little in return (this is possibly to its own detriment). LP is one of the few truly benevolent art institutions with which I am familiar in the city. When you witness something with potential you try to do as much as possible to ensure that it will flourish. Unfortunately, there are but a small number of people who do most of the work with very limited resources; so I volunteer to help.”
By donating to LP’s “Buy a Brick” campaign you stand up for the rich artistic culture of LIC.
“As Long Island City goes through its changes and becomes less an artist area, it’s all the more important to have organizations like Local Project in existence and functioning well as a gathering place, an exhibit place, a place for the education of artists.“
