Queens International 2013 is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York, La Guardia Corporation, Contemporary Art Foundation, Target, and Holosonic Research Labs, Inc. Additional funding provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Venue Description: The Queens Museum of Art, located in the New York City Building in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, strives to present the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for those in the metropolitan area. Given its location, the museum makes concerted efforts to directly relate its programming to the surrounding contemporary urban life. This landmark remains a true piece of New York, as it is the only remaining building from the World's Fair. Shortly after its initial use, it became the recreation center for Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and is still used in conjunction with the park today. Since its inception in 1939 for the New York World's Fair, the New York City Building has housed great works of art.

The Queens Museum of Art has an assortment of pieces including Tiffany lamps, windows, glass, and other items dating back to the early 20th century. Another popular long-term exhibit is the Panorama, originally built to celebrate the city's municipal infrastructure by simulating every building constructed in all five boroughs. Given the pace at which the city's skyline expands, work-intensive improvements have been made throughout the years to maintain the accuracy of the exhibit.

Educational programs for grades pre-K-12 and adults and seniors are offered throughout the year, including multi-session visits by a teaching artist or architect. Family programs and free drop-in art workshops are also available.

The Queens Museum of Art is in Flushing Meadow-Corona Park in Queens. The museum's hours are Wednesday-Sunday 12-6pm. Hour-long tours of the Panorama are offered every weekend and are free with admission. Private tours are also available. All areas of the gallery are wheelchair-accessible. For information on ticketing, parking, hours, and exhibits, call 718-592-9700 or visit queensmuseum.org. Admission is by suggested donation; $5 for adults, seniors and children $2.50.
