Public Trust: Opening Reception – Continue the weekend’s stylishness with an opening reception for this interactive art exhibition. LIC’s Flux Factory – a venerable art organization helping artists get discovered since 1994 – has commissioned some seasoned artists “to critique, celebrate, augment, and intervene in the institutions that generate, package, and deliver culture in New York City.” Expect a fiery blend of both energetic performances and confident art installations critiquing certain social institutions.
