The Rockaway Artists Alliance is now showing the exhibit Calm, Storm, Rebirth: Artists’ Interpretations of Hurricane Sandy. The Wave writes that “the exhibition traces the experience of Hurricane Sandy through the work of more than 40 artists and more than 100 works of art. The work runs the gamut from painting to sculpture to assemblage, original song lyrics, photography and more.” Visitors can walk through before, during, and after phases of the storm. Earlier this week the Rockaway Artists Alliance hosted a Night of Reflection at the exhibit and more than 100 people attended. Calm, Storm, Rebirth will be on view until November 24th at sTudio 7 Gallery in Fort Tilden.

So how did you fare during this past weekend’s hurricane? Did your neighborhood see a ton of snow? Or was it totally manageable? Did you go sledding with your kids (or with your friends?). And what do you think about the naming of winter storms like this? Leave us a comment here or via twitter at @queesnycity. And if you have photos or video of the storm and right after to share, please send it our way! You can email us here – you might see them on the site, too.

Well, we are in the middle of Hurricane Sandy and looking forward to it being over. We’re curious – have you ever experienced a major hurricane or other natural event before, like an earthquake, flooding, or tornado? Let us know in the comments or on twitter via @queensnycity.
