Join Loisaida Center's third year of the Garbagia Open Atelier for both collaborative and individual projects, with a final community celebration!

Loisaida is proud to bring our community an ongoing summer program highlighting and revitalizing the migrant experience, our neighborhood's historical inventiveness, and ecological resilience.

Inspired by local artist and activist, Rolando Politi, whose iconic repurposed and recycled sculptures pepper community gardens throughout Loisaida, the program uses place-based pedagogy and recycled materials to equip youth and residents in using creative strategies to address the city's urgent issues.

Teaching Artist: Marta V
