The Godwin-Ternbach Museum (GTM) at Queens College will mark a milestone in housing the borough’s only collection of art and artifacts that date from ancient to modern times with its new exhibition, Queens Collects: 60 Years at the GTM. On view from October 22 through December 17, the exhibition will showcase donations from the past decade and the best of more than 6,000 artworks in the museum’s extraordinary collection, including prints by Rembrandt, Warhol, and Whistler; ancient and antique glass from Egypt, Greece and Rome; and a survey of works from its collections of African, Asian, Islamic and Pre-Columbian art.

Queens Collects will be the final exhibition presented under the museum’s current director, Amy Winter. A benefit today is honoring her 15 years of leadership on the occasion of her retirement. The benefit will include a silent auction of specially donated artworks, and private museum tours of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the GTM.
