Come hear our Artist-in-Residence M.J. Levy Dickson talk about her installation that is currently on view in conjunction with the Queens Historical Society's exhibit "Leading the Way: Six Outstanding Women of Queens."  

Dickson's installation pairs beauty with message, and a familiar backdrop with a surprising element that can lead visitors to reconsider past perceptions and re-envision future possibility. This work has been shown at multiple sites throughout the United States and abroad. Her project was inspired by her time spent at the Perkins School for the Blind (now known as Perkins) and experimenting with the tactile dimensions of art. The installation is meant to be interactive and Dickson invites all visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to touch and enjoy the textured shapes of handmade sea glass-like objects.
