Jamaica Memories: Free Postcards for All! A Project by Artist Linda Ganjian

A project by artist Linda Ganjian for Jamaica Flux 2021, organized by the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, in collaboration with Queens Public Library’s Queens Memory project.

Linda Ganjian engaged local architectural history as experienced through its residents. Her project, Jamaica Memories, combines quotes and personal histories with drawings of significant neighborhood sites, as well as quotidian architecture that is vulnerable to redevelopment in an era of massive rezoning and change. Through community interviews that discuss memories of favorite buildings and sites, the artist created a series of free, publicly available postcards. The postcards are displayed at the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL), the King Manor Museum, and Queens Central Library.

This project is part of Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 organized by JCAL with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Resorts World New York, and the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. This project is also made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
