A PUBLIC ART PROJECT

Zoe Beloff

Zoe is a visual artist and filmmaker. She aims to make art that entertains, educates, and provokes discussion. With a focus on social justice, she draws timelines between past and present to imagine a more egalitarian future. Zoe’s work has been featured in international exhibitions and screenings; include the Whitney Museum Biennale, Site Santa Fe, the M HKA museum in Antwerp, and the Pompidou Center in Paris. However, she particularly enjoys working in alternative venues that are free and open to the community for events and conversations. These have included in New York City; The Coney Island Museum, Participant, Momenta and The James Gallery at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Eric Muzzy

Eric studied documentary filmmaking at Temple University though he started his young professional life peripatetically in a series of pursuits including factory worker, cabinet maker, house builder, deckhand and cameraman. He has worked in the film industry as well as acting as director of photography on independent films. He regularly collaborates with two New York artists, Zoe Beloff and composer and singer Shelley Hirsch. He has done theatrical lighting and multimedia visuals with Shelley and is the cinematographer on all of Zoe Beloff’s films and installations.

Lisseth Moreno

Lisseth recently graduated from Queens College with a BA degree in Film and Media studies. Her love for sound started very early on in high school, where she listened to podcasts daily. Her work as an audio editor/producer at the QC Pod ignited her passion for creative sound design and encouraged her to pursue similar interests. Currently, she is beginning her career as a location sound recordist and hopes to one day create her own video podcast series.
