Mark your calendar for August 20th! SculptureCenter has announced details for its annual LIC Block Party, and it’s going to be a whole lot of fun. To get in on the action, We Heart Astoria is participating this year as a media sponsor!

If you’re unfamiliar with the FREE, family-friendly event, here’s what you can expect: From 12pm-5pm, the entire SculptureCenter and the length of Sculpture Street (also known as Purves Street) in Long Island City will be taken over for the event, which includes an Artist Market, live performances, art activities, and food/beverages from local purveyors.

Performers include OTIUM, Daisy Press, Bianca Benson, and Jessica Lang Dance, with DJ sets by TYGAPAW. There will also be a special headliner, to be announced at a later date!

Activities will include:

-a live-cutting fashion workshop

A selection of local artists have been invited to sell their work directly to the public. The great thing about this? Participants will receive 100% of all proceeds.

Food and drinks will be offered by local vendors including Bartleby & Sage, Hibino LIC, and (one of my favorites) Rockaway Brewing Co.
