In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Association for a Better New York and the Louis Armstrong House Museum invite you to join us for a screening of the Corona, Queens community's powerful Together, We Are New York project Ibeta//Resilience, a multidisciplinary piece created by Harpist Edmar Castañeda and Visual Artist Maria De Los Angeles Rodriguez Jimenez.
Debuting on Sunday, October 3, Ibeta//Resilience included three hollow standing translucent sculptures installed in the Armstrong Garden filled with used textiles donated by community members, and embodying the emptiness of what has been lost over the last 20+ months. The sculptures were brought to life by the sublime sounds of Edmar Castañeda and his ensemble using spoken word, Afro-Latin rhythms, and a set of interviews conducted in the neighborhood. Edmar's four-part suite titled "Resilience" was inspired by the Corona, Queens community.
We hope you will join us to view this moving exhibit of art and community celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month on Thursday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m.
