Artist Who Can’t Stand New York Studio Prices? Live in a Mobile Work Space
A combined promotional and activist project put on by the Queens Museum helps budding artists manage their humble beginnings and find inspiration on the go
Creatives and artists are gaining attention with Queens Museum’s Studio in the Park: The Queens Museum-ArtBuilt Mobile Studio Residency Program to raise awareness of New York City’s rising studio prices. The project has two different artists working from June through August 2015, in separate month intervals, inside a 150 square foot trailer at Flushing Meadows Corona park.
This program was made possible by the partnership with ArtBuild and NYC Parks department. ArtBuild creates small mobile work spaces that are affordable on a budding artist’s income. Making them mobile allows an artists to visit new places for inspiration.
