Studio in the Park was a residency program developed by the Queens Museum and ArtBuilt which provided an artist or artist collective use of a 150 square foot mobile studio space situated on the lawn between the Museum and the iconic Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Selected artists carried out a community-engaged art project over the course of 4-6 weeks.
The ArtBuilt Studio in the Park residency began in 2015 in partnership with the Queens Museum. With the receipt of a prestigious OUR TOWN grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), this residency program expanded to all five boroughs in 2018 and 2019.
