Our Story

About Us

The Garage Art Center, inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community art center. The purpose of the organization is to support and promote the public interest, awareness, knowledge, and education in the visual arts in Queens, New York.

Our mission is to present quality arts that engage, educate and foster the diverse communities of Queens, New York. As a neighborhood art playground run by artists, we support both local and international artists, and arts organizations in presenting quality art exposure and educational experiences for the benefit of the local community.

The Garage Art Center, Inc. fulfills its mission by providing multi-disciplinary programs reflecting the diversity of our local community. We promote the pleasure and appreciation of art, support the creative endeavor of artists, and enhance the quality of life by introducing audiences to new forms and genres of art.

The Garage Museum Program:

Solo exhibitions to highlight the in-depth philosophy of an individual artist and occasional group exhibitions that explore compelling themes.

The Garage Education Program:

Hands-on art workshops, artist talks, art lectures, and panel discussions for the public.

The Garage Community Program:

Guided gallery group visit and onsite group workshop at community centers in the Queens area and beyond.

We provide art workshops to seniors in our neighborhood organization and libraries including Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (KCS) and SelfHelp Senior Center. We are also collaborating with our local friend Dance to Wellness, Inc. who provides dance and fitness classes and interactive lectures that educate and inform the public of various health issues including seniors and 'differently-abled' people.

With generous venue support from cultural organizations in Queens, such as Flushing Town Hall and Queens College Art Center, we also provide curated group exhibitions. By working in collaboration with other organizations in our community, we create new connections and stronger bonds between community organizations to expand and amplify our mission to a broader audience and engage with the public.
