Closing Celebration for Queens Creative Solidarity
Mobile Studio in the Park Residency

– En Español Abajo-

This event is part of Queens Museum, ArtBuilt and NYC Parks, Studio in the Park – Residency #4. This six-week residency opportunity provides artists the chance to work in a 150 square foot purpose-built mobile studio situated on the lawn in front of the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and near a gateway park entrance with maximum public accessibility.

Queens Creative Solidarity (QCS)’s six-week-long Studio In The Park residency project is titled “Flushing Meadows Corona Park: What it’s Worth.”  QCS aims to build and cultivate an equitable network of artists and creative people in Queens that acknowledges and respects the cultural richness already present in our neighborhoods, learning together how to be involved in community where art, art making, dignified living, learning, parenting and working conditions are an equal right for all

For the past month and half, QCS has used their mobile studio space as a platform to encourage dialogue around free and equal access to Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

Come celebrate QCS’s Residency Closing, watch the premiere of “Flushing Meadows Corona Park: What it’s Worth,”
and make your own zine!

Location: Mobile Studio, in front of the Queens Museum

We asked park goers: “What is a day in the park worth to you?” and “What would it mean to you if access to the park was restricted?” Come and hear stories from the families, neighbors, tourists, athletes and friends about what the park means to them.
