Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
There’s nothing like a good story to get the imagination working. Join The Queens Bookshop Inititative every third Saturday from June through September for Storytime in the Park! They will begin with traditional storytime, reading children’s books that explore the joy of art and creativity, with some even written by local Queens authors. Then, everyone gets a chance to be an author or an illustrator by participating in Interactive Storytime, where they’ll get you started, but the adventure is up to you.
Address: 2-01 Vernon Blvd. Long Island City, NY 11106
Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
