Art and Programs for the Community
The Queens Museum of Art strives to offers art exhibits and programs that relate to New Yorkers and the residents of Queens, one of the most diverse communities in the U.S. Past exhibitions include Queens International, a exhibition of works by artists from around the world who live or work in Queens and Hassan Khan’s The Hidden Location, which was the first New York museum installation by the Egyptian video artist.
On permanent display at the museum is The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, which features the works of Louis C. Tiffany in the New York metropolitan area. This extraordinary collection includes Tiffany windows, lampshades, and more than two hundred pieces of flat glass.
This museum also offers many fun and educational programs and events for the community including outdoor theatre and music festivals, International Home Movie Day and the New New Yorkers program which offers a variety of classes including language and computer skills for immigrant adults.
