An Italian artist is asking for help to compose an anthem for Queens.

A new exhibition at the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park is asking residents to imagine which sounds and melodies would encompass the perfect anthem for the “World’s Borough.”

As part of “Marinella Senatore: La Piazza Universale/Social Stages,” the museum is asking residents to submit clips of sounds, songs or noises that will be incorporated into an original anthem produced by Italian composer Emiliano Branda.

The composition will then be performed on April 9 as part of Senatore’s performance at the Queens Museum called “Protest Forms: Memory and Celebration.” The performance will feature musicians, dancers, poets and activists “to explore the many forms and rich legacies of protest in New York City and across the United States,” according to the museum’s website.

The songs, sounds or noises should be one minute or less and the museum is asking for songs that residents have written, noises that “are meaningful to you or that you hear every day” or sounds that are heard during public events or meetings. The deadline to submit for the project is March 17.

Senatore is an Italian visual artist whose work, including performances, paintings, installations, photography and sound pieces, focus on social themes and urban issues, according to her website.

Her exhibition will run through July 30 and Senatore will present a selection of recent and new works.
