The Kaufman Arts District, anchored by the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios, is home to a community of unique cultural institutions that support emerging artists. Founded by KAS, Museum of the Moving Image and Queens Council on the Arts, KAD spans 24+ blocks and serves to advocate for and promote arts in our neighborhood. KAD is Queen’s first cultural district.

Our Mission

Kaufman Arts District advances and promotes its area as a vibrant cultural destination and home for creative industries. We want to enhance the value of our neighborhood’s creative and economic life by engaging artistic, educational and commercial neighbors through excellent design, practices and programs. KAD welcomes and promotes collaborations in all different forms of art.

Our Vision

Promote Kaufman Arts District as a dynamic destination for locals and tourists alike. Create a series of public art installations in and around KAD to draw traffic from other neighborhoods. Draw attention to all the cultural resources of the community, and use the recognition to build community identity and pride.
