The funding will help artists and organizations continue bringing performances and visual arts to western Queens and across New York. 

“Arts are critical to our community and a key part of New York State’s economic recovery. I am pleased to represent so many diverse, talented artists and organizations,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “Arts were the first entities to shut down and among the last to reopen.
