As JCAL has remained committed to our mission of providing high-quality, accessible arts programming to the community, we've quickly shifted dozens of classes, workshops and performances to JCAL Online. Check out our upcoming events below and subscribe to our Youtube to tune in to our online programs!
Monstah Black: Cotton
This dance film will be accompanied by a live musical performance on June 5th @ 7:30 PM on our Facebook. The work investigates the idea of physical transformation as a source for healing. Black employs images from slavery as a point of departure, modifying the images into positive iconography to inspire and empower those that suffered and continue to suffer from its ugly legacy.
Community and Culture
Community And Culture is an Online Exhibition of Artworks by Queens College Art Education Graduate Students on view May 20 - June 28, 2020. There will be an Artist Talk on Thursday, June 4, from 6 to 7pm, giving the artists opportunity to discuss their projects in more detail and start a dialogue with the audience. The event will be held via Zoom.
