The 2023 Claire Shulman Awards

Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 5:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

This May, we inaugurate a special event honoring business innovators and leaders in Queens.

The evening is dedicated to Claire Shulman, who served as Queens Borough President from 1986 to 2002, and during her tenure, was instrumental in the establishment and development of Museum of the Moving Image. Shulman was a driving force in the transformation of various issues, including land use, economic development and revitalization, health care, infrastructure, and increased funding for public and arts programs. Shulman also continued to support the Museum after its opening, advocating for its expansion and development; helping to secure additional funding for the construction of its new building, which opened in 2011; and serving on its board of trustees for many years. We recall her work with this award and look to the future as we honor those who extend her legacy. 

The 2023 Awardees:

K. Bain, Founder and Executive Director, Community Capacity Development

Tom Grech, President and CEO, Queens Chamber of Commerce  

Melva Miller, CEO, Association for a Better New York  

Hal Rosenbluth, President, Kaufman Astoria Studios 

With additional special guests 

Proceeds from the event will allow us to support our education initiatives, exhibitions, screenings, and community engagement programs, serving both youth and adults. Through tours, screenings, discussion programs, and workshops, our student visitors (over 50% of whom are from public title 1 schools) gain 21st-century literacy skills and learn about careers in the media industry, and our digital media and learning programs serve as a national model. And we remain as devoted as ever to continuing our work with immigrant communities, residents of public housing, and people with disabilities.
