The Queens Museum’s Open A.I.R. Artist Services Program is collaborating to host our popular Dinner Without an Agenda series with LIC Arts Open, a five-day arts extravaganza in Long Island City, Queens from May 13-17, where over 500 artists are expected to occupy galleries and other local spaces and open their studios to visitors.


Location: Open Door Restaurant, 10-09 50th Avenue Long Island City, NY 11101, next to the Vernon Blvd. 7 train Stop or close to G Train 21st Street Stop.


We believe that informal no-agenda meetings can be incredibly fruitful and generative for artists. Come ask questions, discuss your work, and share a delicious meal with LIC Arts Open curator Miguel Luciano and 10 other artists.

About Miguel Luciano

Born in 1968 in The Dominican Republic, Luciano came to New York with a group of artists granted scholarships for the partnership of Altos de Chavon School of Desing (DR) and The New School (NYC) which he attended from 1994 to 1996. For the last 15 years he has been involved in the New York art scene not only as an artist but also as an art installer for major institutions like MOMA PS1, as an educator for the “New NewYorkers” Program at the Queens Musseum of Art, and with curatorial projects at the Bronx Art Space and Local Project in LIC. He is also a founding member of the printmaking collective “Dominican York Proyecto Grafica”. Luciano’s work can be found in public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad, and has been seen in numerous exhibitions worldwide. He currently lives and works in New York City.
