The Queens Museum is one of the only US museums to house a working studio program. In fall 2013, an expansion doubling the Museum’s size included artist studios in the north wing. We invite all artists to apply for a subsidized studio at the Museum, available for one year, with a possible extension for a second year. In designating permanent real estate to the long-term development of new work on-site, as well as creating a community of artists, the Queens Museum aims to promote artists’ creative process and professional development. Please click here for more information.

Who should apply? 
As a studio program within a museum, we encourage artists to apply who believe they might be able to contribute to the life of the organization. Participation can range from being in your studio during Queens Museum exhibition openings to organizing events for the public with the input of the Curatorial and Public Events departments. Please consider your availability and geographical location carefully, and apply only if you are confident you will use the studio 15 hours/week or more. If you can, we encourage you to visit and familiarize yourself with the Museum before you apply.

Selection process 
Selections will be made by Queens Museum staff and two distinguished outside professionals: one curator and one artist. This jury will select a small number of finalists who will then be interviewed in person or via Skype for a final decision.

The studios 
Artists have access to their studios from 6am to midnight. Because the studios are within the Museum, there can be no use of toxic or combustible materials.

Community and career 
We ask all studio artists to attend a monthly meeting to which everyone can bring ideas, questions, and interesting visitors. Open studios are scheduled to coincide with exhibition openings at the Queens Museum.
