We’re pleased to welcome Jeannine Han, Woomin Kim, Xin Liu, Iman Raad, Jennifer May Reiland, Lachell Workman and The Room of Spirit and Time to the Queens Museum to our Studio Program, a two-year-long residency!
This is our Panorama mimicking night-time. We installed a new day/night lighting scheme that creates an immersive experience of the world’s largest full scale model of NYC. Teachers, have you booked your school tours yet?
Join us for the opening of an exhibition of works created by the participants in our #NewNewYorkers program tomorrow. These works reveal the concerns and creative approaches of our immigrant adult community.
We are thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2018-2019 QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship, Alexandria Smith and American Artist! —————————————————— Alexandria Smith (@asmithstudios) is a mixed media visual artist based in New York City and Boston, MA.

As we prepare to welcome a new Queens Museum Studio Program cohort, we’d like to bid farewell to our former studio artists who made QM their second home over the past few years. Ryan Kuo (@thanks_dad), @andermikalson, Dakota Gearhart (@tiffkota), Gloria Maximo, Karolina Sobecka, Farideh Sakhaeifar, @chrisbogia, and Alina Tenser (@fraulein_aliqua) - we can’t wait to see what's next in your artistic journeys. #QMConnects

The Kodak Pavilion in the 1964 World’s Fair featured the world's largest outdoor photographic prints in color that were visible from almost every part of the fair. The five color photographs stood at 30 by 36 feet and were mounted at 80 feet above the ground. These images would change every four weeks from photographs taken by camera crews that traveled the world looking for unique and compelling pictures of nature to portraits of people. #WorldsFairWednesday
As many of you may know, the Museum is located only a few hundred feet from the US Open. Due to the heightened security for the tennis tournament, access to the Museum is affected. As such, we are closed from Wednesday, August 29 until the September 9 conclusion of the tournament. We apologize for the inconvenience and will use this downtime to install an exciting exhibition season. We hope you will join us on October 7 for the opening of “Queens International 2018: Volumes”.
"The Queens Museum has a distinguished history with their communities and constantly finds ways to activate the museum space with them in mind. This history has a major influence in their educational and curatorial approach. As an artist raised in NYC, I felt honored to contribute to this perspective. Their constant re-evaluation of the public sphere offered a common ground for me to propose my project "no hay medio tiempo" as a welcoming site for the surrounding communities of migrant populations." - Ronny Quevedo #QMConnects 📷 Argenis Apolinario
In the 9,335-square-foot built-to-scale re-creation of the five boroughs, the borough of Manhattan measures a seemingly vast 70 x 15 feet and the Empire State Building is a towering 15 inches tall. #WorldsFairWednesday
