The Arts at Queens

Arts at Queens University of Charlotte

At the edge of our campus along Selwyn Avenue, we have installed "Triple Arc I" by the landmark American sculptor James Rosati, on loan from the Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte. We hope it inspires members of the community to find out more about the opportunities to attend our performances, readings and exhibitions.   

Art Exhibits

The Max L. Jackson Art Gallery has held exhibitions of some of the great artists of our time, including painter Phillip Pearlstein, photorealist Chuck Close, and installation artists Judy Chicago and Jeanne-Claude. We also regularly sponsor a national juried show of Latino artists, "Arte Latino Now," and shows of local focus and student work. Our talented faculty exhibit painting, sculpture, interior design, digital media, photography and more.   

Literary Readings

Queens brings writers and poets to Charlotte who have been awarded major literary prizes, such as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, as well as best-selling authors, such as Elizabeth Strout, Adam Johnson and Claudia Rankine. Our campus offers readings through our English Department Reading Series, readings by our faculty and our MFA Writing Program, and through the Learning Society and Friends of the Library.   

Music Concert Series

Dana Auditorium in the Fine Arts Center has welcomed nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians, including Leon Fleisher, classical guitarist David Russell, the Julliard String Quartet, Anderson & Roe Piano Duo, and the Marian Anderson String Quartet. The Queens Ensemble in Residence, The Bechtler Ensemble, performs regularly, as does the Charlotte Concert Band.   


Hadley Theatre is a black box theatre on the back wing of campus, 2132 Radcliffe Ave. Here, our faculty direct students of all majors in memorable productions. Queens Theatre has recently performed Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream," musicals such as "The Rocky Horror Show" and "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change," and productions of "Almost Maine" and "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead."
