Alumni News: Art Event at Fort Totten by Aaron Asis

Queens College art department alumnus Aaron Asis (BFA, 2003) is creating a unique site-specific installation at Fort Totten. Fortified is a special weekend event at Fort Totten Park which consists of a series of temporary installations and public access tours to highlight the under-appreciated significance of the Battery sites at Fort Totten Park. An open access installation inside the Water Battery will include a series of overhead cords, woven through existing structural passages to encourage visitors to observe and appreciate the structural details which we planned but never completed. Guided public access within the Main Magazine and behind-the-scenes access tour of the Endicott Battery will also be provided — to highlight the truly unique characteristics and historic significance of Fort Totten.

The hope is that together, we can create a wonderful opportunity to gather and celebrate one of the most spectacular hidden treasures in the city — right here in Queens!

Fortified will be open to the public on Saturday (6/15) & Sunday (6/16) from 12pm-4pm. For more information please see the registration page, at:

Aaron Asis is an artist focused on promoting access, awareness and appreciation—throughout our built environments. Born and raised in Queens, NY, Aaron’s work explores a variety of artistic processes designed to inspire, educate, and demonstrate the power of creative collaborations – at the intersection of public interest, community engagement, and governmental coordination.

Students are invited to the Met after hours for a night of dancing, fashion, and art making in celebration of student fashion designers and The Costume Institute exhibition Camp: Notes on Fashion, on Thursday, May 23rd, 6:30-9:30pm.

In March, undergraduate and graduate student fashion designers submitted preliminary designs inspired by images from the exhibition Camp: Notes on Fashion. From among many excellent entries, Met curators chose ten finalists to fabricate their designs. During this event, curators and special guests judge the finished garments and select two winners (one undergraduate student and one graduate student) and two runners-up. Students can vote for one overall fan favorite.

This event is open to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students only. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
