La Ventanita: Queens Musem

Rooted in the Latin American cultural tradition of leaning out the window to share news, stories, and ideas with neighbors, La Ventanita (Spanish for “The Little Window”) is a multi-platform Queens Museum initiative that connects schools, families, communities, and cultural institutions by asking one simple question: What do you see through your window?

In this moment of social distancing, windows – both physical and virtual – have become essential gateways to the outside world, allowing people to continue interacting with each other and their surroundings from afar. La Ventanita/The Little Window invites the public to look through the windows in their room or on their screens, and channel intimate COVID-19 experiences into collective moments of creative expression.
