The Queens Museum is a local international art space in Flushing Meadows Corona Park with contemporary art, events and educational programs reflecting the diversity of Queens and New York City.
The Queens Museum has announced the opening weekend events lineup to coincide with the opening of the Museum's expansion and inaugural exhibitions - Pedro Reyes: The People's United Nations (pUN), Peter Schumann: The Shatterer, New York City Building Time Lapse, 2009 - 2013: Photographs by Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, Queens International 2013, and Citizens of the World: Cuba in Queens. A broad variety of exhibitions and programming highlight the expanded gallery space and showcase the Museum's dedication to presenting contemporary art that engages the uniquely diverse communities it serves, reflecting the richness and breadth of the cultural environment. Also timed with the inauguration of the new building, the museum is undergoing a rebranding initiative with a new visual identity, a renaming of the institution from Queens Museum of Art to the Queens Museum, and is soon launching a redesigned website.
The Queen's Museum's opening month of activities will kick off with the Target Wide Open Weekend featuring multicultural welcoming and blessing ceremonies on Saturday, November 9. In addition, the inaugural group of artists in the Queens Museum Studio Residency Program will open their doors and welcome the public into their studios. The weekend also features performances by artists in Queens International 2013 with extended hours on Saturday night for the Museum and exhibition opening party.
