Press Release Statement for April 21, 2017, 12:30pm

Queen’s Public Library, Flushing Branch Exhibit on Display, April-May 2017
"Flushing’s Changing Landscape: From Agricultural to Urban Community"
The Bowne House is pleased to announce our new exhibit, on display from now until May 2017 at the Flushing Branch of the Queens Public Library, 41-17 Main Street, Flushing,
NY 11355.

Titled "Flushing’s Changing Landscape: From Agricultural to Urban Community", this
exhibit places the story of the Bowne family and Flushing itself in connection with many of New York City's major historic events. We explore our changing landscape from agrarian farmland to bustling urban environment. Two children’s workshops will be offered in conjunction with this exhibit at the Flushing Library after school on May 3rd and May 10th.

The Bowne House museum has been supported in this project by the Queens District
Council, District 20 Councilman Peter Koo, The New York City Parks Equity Initiative and private sponsors. We thank them all for the support of this exhibit and for their on-going support.
