The Queens Council on the Arts announced an open call to all borough-based artists to apply for a new residency program in partnership with two Long Island City hotels. The newly established QCA Art Hotel Residency will provide space for two artists to work in spaces inside the Z NYC Hotel and the Paper Factory Hotel for three months.
“We’re always trying to figure out new ways to support our artists in Queens,” QCA Grants and Resources Director Lynn Lobell said. “The big word on the street is that artists are being displaced by development, especially in Long Island City, and the Z Hotel and the Paper Factory jumped on board with us. They are two very different hotels, but they both support the arts.”
