This initiative of Queens College (QC) School of Arts will highlight the richness of the Queens College holdings brought together for the first time, including works from Godwin-Ternbach Museum (GTM), QC Fashion and Textiles Collection, QC Art Department, Queens College Library, Louis Armstrong House Museum, and Daghlian Collection of Chinese Art.
Historically, Queens College began officially acquiring art and artifacts from the 1930s to the 1950s to be utilized as a teaching collection for students of art, art history, fashion and textiles, and any student, staff, or faculty interested in examining material culture.
GTM holds the largest collection of about 7,000 works of art and artifacts in addition to the Daghlian Collection of Chinese Art given in 2012. As a teaching museum, GTM makes selected objects available to students for a unique “hands-on” experience within the museum itself or in its art storage facility.
The Gift: Queens College Collects is funded in part by the Friends of the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Kupferberg Center for the Arts, and Queens College, CUNY. Education programs and initiatives are supported in part by the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, and public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with NY City Council.
