Made In Queens
“Made in Queens” is a series that features makers, builders, and artists from Queens. Giving light to those stories is a key to
encourage more and more people from the Queens community to create and share their craft right here in our diverse borough.
Creatively and uniquely, each episode tells the artist’s story, purpose, and dream as well as the meaning behind their craft.
