Kupferberg Center for the Arts (KCA) is the award-winning entertainment complex on the campus of Queens College, offering patrons the perfect local venue to catch A-list stars like Nick Cannon, Brian Wilson, Patti LaBelle, and more as part of the Kupferberg Presents season. Its upcoming shows include performances by Susana Baca, The Spinners and Little Anthony & the Imperials, Damn Yankees, and Cesar Millan. Kupferberg Center offers free parking, easy access to the Long Island Expressway, and excellent dining options.
In addition to the star-studded events that take place at its home at Queens College, Kupferberg Center connects the communities of Queens by presenting diverse programming throughout the borough. With over 50 free yearly concerts and exhibitions by international acts and local artists in many of our neighborhoods, KCA seeks to cross cultural boundaries and link the diverse populations of our borough as well as to attract people from outside Queens to our parks, libraries, schools, and plazas. Our roster for our off-site shows have included world music, reggae, ska, Mexican, Irish, and Arabic folk, jazz, blues, and rock.
The flavor and vibrancy that characterizes our borough today is shown in full force both at KCA’s on-campus events, as well as in those presented in the neighborhoods of Queens.
Kupferberg Center for the Arts also creates wide reaching programs that are changing the City’s cultural landscape. The CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), spearheaded by KCA, is a residency program that provides local dance companies and choreographers with subsidized rehearsal and performance spaces on 13 CUNY campuses throughout the five boroughs. This project that reimagines the use of underutilized spaces for artistic residencies has been garnering attention from national publications, cultural organizations, and major donors.
Kupferberg Center’s 2017-2018 season is on sale now on our brand-new website, www.kupferbergcenter.org. With so many events to take part in, which one will you see first?
