A one-of-a-kind immersive art installation is coming to Staten Island.

Created by photographer Christine Cruz,  Project Alice is a year-long adventure that will commence with the opening of an immersive, interactive art gallery in September 2017.

Cruz was inspired to create Project Alice in 2016, as a way to voice her opinion about issues affecting Staten Islanders, and quickly began recruiting fellow artists and actors to help with her unique project.

She and her team are combining the magical characters and underlying themes within the world of Alice in Wonderland to raise awareness about addiction, suicide, bullying, black lives matter, depression and anxiety.

Cruz always loved Alice in Wonderland since she was a child and believes that people can connect to the story’s many themes, especially that of metamorphosis — just as Alice transforms many times throughout her story, we, as humans should celebrate the many transformations of our personal journeys through life.
