Queenscapes Instagram Take Over - Roy Martinez


“Some people think they are in community, but they are only in proximity. True community requires commitment and openness. It is a willingness to extend yourself to encounter and know the other.”     

It is in this vein that we choose to involve and engage our social media community. We thought it was an instinctive way to support the perspectives of the folks that have supported us by giving you all a chance to display your unique points of view.

So as of yesterday we have handed over complete content control of our Queenscapes Instagram feed to Roy Martinez @corrduroy.  

Roy is a proud Queens representative, who has been a supporter of ours since the early days. He has collaborated with us on a bunch of exhibits and programs throughout the borough and just last year he helped us organize and co-curate #FMCoronaPark18 Exhibit at the Queens Museum.

He is a phenomenal photographer with a great sense of what makes Queens special and we feel fortunate to have him represent the team. We hope you all enjoy his work just as much as we have over the years.
