The Godwin-Ternbach Museum, an entity of the Kupferberg Center for the Arts, is located on the campus of Queens College and features cultural exhibitions and programs of contemporary and historical significance for the diverse audiences of Queens and the metropolitan region—students, faculty and public alike. It is the only comprehensive collection of art and artifacts in the borough, housing nearly 6,000 works that date from ancient to modern times, representing global cultures from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America. The museum interprets objects on view in the context of the many traditions and histories that give Queens its unique vitality and richness; and introduces many individuals to art and artifacts they might not otherwise encounter. Lectures, symposia, gallery talks, workshops, films, concerts, and tours, as well as digital displays, print and online catalogues, and an active website, illuminate the art on view. All exhibitions and programs are free.

Artist Talk : Caroline Wells Chandler
Tuesday, December 4 at 5:00PM
Join Queens-based artists, Caroline Wells Chandler, as he discusses his work in the exhibition, From the Desert to the City: The Journey of Late Ancient Textiles. Stemming out of 1970’s feminist craft history, Chandler’s brightly colored hand crocheted figures explore queerness and the art historical cannon. Chandler twists the language of folk by using the materials, processes, and the archetypes of conservative culture to create afiirmational queer arenas.
