Royals Radio – Episode 01

PUBLIC ART, COMMUNITY, & QUEENS DIANA

“Public Art, Community, & Queens Diana” investigates the history and life of Young Diana, Goddess of the Hunt – a bronze statue in the center of the Queens University of Charlotte campus. The statue, cast by Anna Hyatt Huntington, arrived at the university in 1940 and has served as a campus icon for decades. Queens staff members Adelaide Davis and Reena Arora share their knowledge of Diana’s history, stories, and voice as “one of the most important pieces of public art in Charlotte.”
