The Queens Museum of Art was established in 1972 by a group of Queens community leaders to provide a vital cultural center in Flushing Meadows Corona Park for the borough's unique, international population. The Museum is situated in the New York City Building, the only major structure remaining from the 1939/40 and the 1964/65 New York World's Fairs.

In 1994, a three-year, $15 million renovation project designed by architect Rafael Violy expanded the gallery spaces to allow the Museum to present exhibitions with broad cultural and historical significance as well as ambitious installations of contemporary art. After 25 years, the Museum serves over 200,000 visitors a year through on- and off-site programs.
