Visit the Queens International 2018: Volumes. As you look at the art in the exhibition, how does it make you feel? What experiences, moods, or memories did you bring with you to the museum today? How did they shape your responses to the artworks?

Maybe a texture you see reminds you of an experience you had that helps you feel the work in your body. What’s that like?

Maybe you just had a coffee and your senses feel sharp and the heat of it left sweat beads on your face.

Maybe a work of art surprised you—in a bad way—or confused you—in a good way. Maybe you and your companion disagreed in your assessments of the show, and you want to puzzle out why.

Maybe you’re thinking of telling a friend about a work you’d think they’d like. Write down your recommendation, and share it with us!


At the Queens Museum

Visit the exhibition at the Queens Museum. There, you can find our writing station near the cafe. It holds writing prompts, pencils, clipboards, the submission box, zines, and examples of past submissions.

You will also find writing prompts in three selected galleries.




At Queens Public Library Branches

Art installations and writing stations are also located in three Queens Public Library branches.



At the Central branch in Jamaica, you can find Patrick Killoran’s installation and our writing station in the stacks. Look near books on “unexplained phenomena.”



At the LeFrak City branch, look for Fel Santos’ installation in the teen section. You’ll find our writing station a few steps away, near the entrance to the “Silent Room.”

Temas de escritura disponibles en español in la biblioteca en LeFrak City.



At the Flushing branch, head downstairs to find Mo Kong’s installation and our writing station adjacent to children’s sculptures of migration vessels (pictured).



You can also submit writing online, on our Write page.
