Queens Museum Studio Program is one of very few artist residencies to be embedded within a US museum. In the Fall of 2013, an expansion doubling the Museum’s size included the construction of eight artist studios in the north wing. In designating permanent real estate to the long-term development of new artwork onsite, the Queens Museum aims to support artists’ creative processes and professional development. Students in Social Practice Queens (part of Queens College MFA Program) also share a collaborative studio space in the Queens Museum’s studio wing.
Previous participants in the Studio Program include Nobutaka Aozaki, Juan Betancurth, Chris Bogia, Onyedika Chuke, Shahab Fotouhi, Galería Perdida, Dakota Gearhart, Mike Kenney, Caitlin Keogh, Ryan Kuo, Gloria Maximo, Ander Mikalson, Filip Olzewski and Bunny Rogers, Jewyo Rhii, Farideh Sakhaeifar, Karolina Sobecka, Alina Tenser, Caroline Woolard and Lika Volkova, Bryan Zanisnik, and Brian Zegeer.
