Calling All Queens-Based Artists!

Queens International 2012 Open Call

Calling all artists living or working in Queens!

Submit your artists’ materials to be considered for Queens International 2012 at the Queens Museum of Art. A tradition since 2001, Queens International is a biennial of artists living and/or working in Queens which brings together a vibrant borough through contemporary visual art in all media. An ambitious look at a borough’s dynamic and growing community of artists that now reaches from Corona to Long Island City, from Ridgewood to Little Neck, and from Douglaston to Rockaway. Queens International historically featured between 40 and 60 artists and produced a small, well-regarded catalogue.

Past Queens International participants include Judith Barry, Cheng Chi Chang, Rosemarie Fiore, Tommy Hartung, Leslie Hewitt, Zhang Huan, Ryan Humphrey, Emily Jacir, Wardell Milan, Clifford Owens, Alejandro Alamanza Pereda, and Liz Phillips, among many others.

Access to Health Center Over the Summer

Dear students:

If you are not currently enrolled in fall classes in other departments but need access to NYU's Student Health Center over the summer, please contact Draper prior to your medical appointment. Several Draper students have been asked to provide letters from our program confirming that they are still enrolled, as services at the Center are restricted to active NYU students. Since Draper's advising/registration period falls later than that of many other departments in GSAS, the Health Center simply needs confirmation that you're still working toward your degree. But once you have a signed letter from Draper confirming that you are a current student, you won't have any trouble accessing services at the health center.

Feel free to call or email Draper with any questions.
