One of Court Square’s largest annual events takes place Saturday: the LIC Block Party.
The event, which is being presented by the SculptureCenter and the Purves Street Block Association, will include art, food and street games for all ages. It will run from noon to 5 pm and takes place on the corner of Jackson Avenue and Purves Street.
The day will feature plenty of food from well known Long Island City establishments—such as Bartleby & Sage, Danny Brown and Manducatis Rustica,
Rockaway Brewing Company will be pouring its craft beer.
Furthermore, adults and children will be able to engage in activities such as doughnut making, carnival games, coffee ground reading, balloon twisting and pony rides.
The Sculpture Center, which mostly exhibits experiential and innovative pieces by emerging artists, will feature the work of Eli Keszler—an architect, composer and drummer- in its basement during the event.
Keszler will present his new work, Swarms, which is a sound art installation involving piano wire, severed pipes and other components. The piece deals with the interaction of music with its acoustic environment.
