Queens Art Intervention 2015 Highlights

 

"I wanted to create art to inspire and educate people but I thought I would also love to have other artists educate people around issues of importance to them.  I created Queens Art Intervention as a way for me to be creative and also as a framework for other artists."

-Yvonne Shortt
