Everyone is invited to the Library to view our new display celebrating the cultural resources of our College. The Queensborough Performing Arts Center (QPAC), the Art Gallery, and the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives are all highlighted in the three glass cases near the entrance. We hope this presentation will provide enjoyment, as well as heighten appreciation of the important educational possibilities that these resources provide.
Deserving our thanks for their invaluable help in putting the exhibit together are Roxana Gheorghiu, Danny Li, and Lawrence Chan (photographer); QPAC’s Susan Agin, John Senise and Vincent Ticalli; Faustino Quintanilla, Lisa Scandaliato, Grace Duran, and John Gilleaudeau from the Art Gallery, and Patricia Thomas of the Holocaust Center.
Also, once again we want to thank Barbara Bonous-Smit for allowing us to use the beautiful dolls from her collection.
We hope you all will have the opportunity to stop by and enjoy our new exhibit. And while you are here, you might want to check out one or two items from our wonderful new book collection, pick up a free book, or take advantage of the “buy-one; get-one-free” sale of gift books.
QCC Art Gallery received grant from National Endowment for the Arts!
The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded a major grant to the QCC Art Gallery to support its popular traveling exhibition featuring the work of photographer Marc Asnin. Asnin's exhibition is a photo essay of images documenting the life of a housebound victim of mental illness.
The project will include an educational outreach component that will engage the artist with local high school students.
