Art to the People: Emmett Wigglesworth
Art to the People captures the spirit of some of the finest artwork created by southeast Queens artists and presents that art in the 18 LinkNYC Links that appear along Jamaica Avenue between Sutphin Boulevard and 168th Street. This month’s featured artist is Emmett Wigglesworth. Emmett Wigglesworth is a muralist, painter, sculptor, fabric designer, poet and civil rights activist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has resided in New York since 1958. Wigglesworth is known for his abstract and colorful murals that he says are inspired by his own cultural heritage and life experience.
