Visual Arts

Art develops the mind. At Queens, we want our students and our community to be engaged by aesthetics and observation, to encounter beauty, new perspectives and realities. This is why we have positioned a landmark sculpture along Selwyn Avenue, "Triple Arc I" by James Rosati, on loan from the Jerald Melberg Gallery. At the heart of our campus is the Max L. Jackson Gallery, located in Watkins Hall. Here we regularly offer exhibitions of painting, prints, photography, graphic design, sculpture, interior design and interactive installations. 

Study Art

The Art Department offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree focusing on Art Studio, Art History, Interior Design, and New Media Design. Continuing education, provided through The Center for Lifelong Learning at Queens, regularly offers classes in visual art.

Get Involved

Friends of Art at Queens unites the campus with the Charlotte community through a shared appreciation of the visual arts. This group supports the Art Department and sponsors lectures and exhibitions, bringing significant artists to our city, such as Judy Chicago, a world-renowned feminist artist and educator. Because of the support of Friends of Art, students and visitors gain invaluable exposure to artists shaping world opinion.
