FORGOTTEN QUEENS – PART 1!

CAN YOU FIND THE ART?!?

Public art often changes as quickly as the area around it.

Join us for a scavenger hunt that will take you on a free self-guided tour seeking out public art installations scattered throughout the neighborhood; each location listed on the fact sheet will include special details and historical information to enhance your visit.

June 14-20, All Day:

Full information will be posted at astorialic.org starting June 14.

For those willing to share photos of their journey on social media, there’s the potential to win a range of prizes for everything from completing the hunt, the quickest to take the most creative photo, and more!
