Queens Museum

The Queens Museum is dedicated to presenting high quality arts and educational programming for the people of New York, and particularly the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse ethnic, cultural, and international community. The Museum’s work honors the history of our site and the diversity of our communities through a wide ranging and integrated program of exhibitions, educational initiatives, and public events. In this current moment of uncertainty, we recognize that museums should serve as places of care, not just for their collections, but for their communities, staff, and artists. The Queens Museum strives to be a cultural institution that is open, responsive, inclusive, and empathetic. Since 2013, the Queens Museum has hosted artists-in-residence to utilize the Museum’s studio spaces for one- to two-year periods. In 2021, we began developing new artist residency models that have been integrated into Museum-wide initiatives, including the Year of Uncertainty (YoU), the In Situ Artist Fellowship program, and the addition of studio spaces for recipients of the ongoing QM-Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists.
