The Librarians of Rosenthal
November 4 ‐ January 3, 2014

Closing Reception | Thursday, December 12, 2013 | 6-8 PM

Many of us have spent some time in a library, but few have actually spent time with a librarian. Keepers of books, folios, and prints, librarians as a profession have quietly kept the annals of contemporary culture and history. Five contemporary photographers document the librarians of Rosenthal and their office spaces to offer a snapshot into the anachronistic career of collecting.

About the Queens College Art Center

Queens College Art Center, a nimble gallery anchored in Queens and open to the world, is a successor of the Klapper Library Art Center that was based in the Queens College Art Library’s gallery founded in 1960. In more than 200 exhibitions to date, it has shown masters like Alice Neel, Joseph Cornell, and Elizabeth Catlett, and introduced scores of artists from around the globe and emerging artists who later went on to major careers. The Art Center focuses on modern and contemporary art, presenting the works of both emerging and established artists in diverse media, in programming expressive of the best of the art of our time.

Admission to the Queens College Art Center is free and open to the public. We are open Monday through Friday during the academic year and are closed on weekends and holidays. For more information please visit
