Programs at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum are open to the public and designed to address the widest public audience possible. Docent tours, exhibition gallery talks by curators and artists, lectures by noted scholars and writers in their fields, literary readings, film series and opening receptions, and other special events serve the adult and senior communities of Queens and the surrounding areas of New York and Long Island.
As a public institution, the Museum strives to create exhibitions that reflect community interests. If you have any suggestions for exhibitions related to your community, please send us your ideas. Some previous exhibitions we have organized along these lines include Memory and History and The Light of Infinite Wisdom: Asian Art from the Godwin-Ternbach Museum and Other Collections. Private tours on a no-fee or low-fee basis are offered to senior centers, women’s clubs, academic and community associations, alumni, QC adult education classes, and many others, as part of the Museum’s mission to provide educational and cultural opportunities for all.
