Queens Council On the Arts has announced Queens artMap, an informative and interactive feature on its web site.

The artMap is designed to make searching for Queens cultural attractions easy. Sponsored by Verizon, Queens artMap shows 35 Queens cultural attractions as well as main topographical features, including airports arterial highways, major parks and streets.

Queens artMap also pinpoints the subway stops nearest each attraction. A click on any map quadrant or cultural venue will bring up a large, easily readable map of the local area. A second click will bring up contact information and a direct link to the web site of each cultural attraction.

"We wanted a way to show what Queens offers to the cultural tourist and resident alike that would be comprehensive, informative, and easily updated. This feature on our web site means that if you know what you want to see, you can get information about it quickly. If you are just looking to see what Queens offers, you can explore it al on the computer with a click of a mouse," said Hoong Yee Lee Krakauer, Executive Director of the Queens Council on the Arts.

"This is a boon for anybody looking for information about the arts and culture in Queens, and we are very grateful to Mr. William D. Martin, Director of Community Affairs, at Verizon for helping us realize the potential of internet technology to help fulfill our mission to support and develop the arts in our borough," she added.

Queens artMap was designed by Hagstrom Map Company of Maspeth, Queens, and adapted for the QCA web site by Hologlyphix Design Group.

The Queens artMap is a feature at www.queenscouncilarts.org.
