Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts of Flushing, NY
Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts was founded in 1979 to be a revitalizing force for its community and a creative catalyst for developing and promoting the arts throughout Queens County, New York. It accomplishes this mission by presenting an array of high quality programs, including exhibitions of painting, sculpture and photography (frequently in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution) and award-winning performances of jazz, theater, dance and classical music. Flushing Council also provides in-school, on-site and family oriented educational opportunities for community residents of all ages, and an array of vital services to local artists and arts organizations. These activities take place in historic Flushing Town Hall that Flushing Council restored and operates on behalf of the City of New York. Flushing Council is a member of the Cultural Institution Group (CIG) of New York City and an Affiliate Member of the Smithsonian Institution.
