In March, we invite families to get creative with maps, inspired by two new artist projects that take their cue from maps. Enveloping the Museum’s model of NYC’s water system will be a project by Duke Riley which addresses the complicated map of upstate water reservoirs and pipes that provide the city with clean water. In a second iteration of the Queens Museum’s Large Wall series on the exterior wall of the Panorama of the City of New York, artist Mariam Ghani has been commissioned create a piece that maps out the linguistic diversity and rare languages spoken in Queens.
