Hey Astoria, want to hear some awesome news first before anyone else? Totes. Astoria based lifestyle store, Lockwood, is opening in the Queens Museum on April 10th, and you’re all invited. Perhaps best known for the Panorama and powerful contemporary art exhibitions, the Queens Museum is a major hub in the Queens art scene. Their on-point views of the Unisphere don’t hurt either.

This April, in conjunction with the opening of Queens International 2016 and Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk, Lockwood Shop will be taking up residence as the official gift shop of the museum. Look for punk themed ephemera, locally designed products by Queens based artists, and a fun, funky collection of NYC inspired items and Queens Museum branded goods.

“We are excited to be partnering with Lockwood, a kindred spirit when it comes to celebrating all that the borough of Queens embodies,” said David Strauss, deputy director of the Queens Museum. “This collaboration allows us to introduce some of Queens’ most talented artisans to new communities, augment the visitor experience with a memorable retail destination, and help one of Queens’ favorite small businesses expand their reach.” For more info on how to get your Queens based items into Lockwood Shop at The Queens Museum, get in touch with Lockwood here.
