Folk Art Museum to Open Space in Queens

The American Folk Art Museum, New York, plans to open an additional space in Queens, reports Javier Pes of the Art Newspaper. The new location, near the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, will house the museum’s collection and library, improving access for researchers. News of the addition comes during the current demolition of the Folk Art Museum’s former home on West Fifty-third Street in midtown Manhattan by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, for the expansion of its galleries.
