This spring, JFKIAT will expand its T4 Arts & Culture program, located inside Terminal 4 of John F. Kennedy International Airport. The expansion will include a curated, ongoing series of public art installations, exhibits, and performances throughout the year that represent the full New York experience from local art to food and culture. Part of the expansion is the Museum of the City of New York‘s inaugural triennial photography exhibition, entitled New York Now: Home, which will be on view through August 27th. 

Presented alongside MCNY’s exhibition is a Queens-based digital installation highlighting the work of artists from Queens and artists utilizing Queens as the main subject of their art. New York Now: Home seeks to highlight the dwellings and experiences of New Yorkers, with each piece depicting a different meaning of home—reflective of the diversity present throughout the city. Fifteen images can be found throughout Terminal 4 along with two viewing stations in the retail hall, with featured artists including Filipina photographer Xyza Cruz Bacani, Queens native Elias Williams, and Maureen Dreenan, whose work captures inhabitants of Broad Channel, Queens, the only inhabited island in Jamaica Bay
