Call and Response: Grief, Resiliency and Hope

Flushing Town Hall

On February 1, 2021, Flushing Town Hall re-opens the community art exhibition and solicits new artwork for the Lunar New Year, once again inviting participants to artistically express the range of emotions they feel as they face the new year. This Lunar New Year is the Year of the Ox— and its associated characteristics of diligence, strength and determination are skills that help build resiliency, allowing us to recover quickly from difficulties.

Amateur and professional artists are invited to explore these concepts artistically in this new exhibition. Consider creating art that answers any of these questions: As I face the new year, what skills do I want to cultivate in myself to create a resilient community? What inspires me and others to be hopeful? How can I honor the memory of someone I lost last year by living a courageous life? How can I artistically connect with my diverse community and bring people together?

Submit a scan of your artwork to and FTH will print your scan to 8.5” x 11” paper, laminate it, and hang it on the fence for you if you can’t come and hang it yourself.
