Don’t miss your last chance to see the internationally-acclaimed exhibition—A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes, Fashion & Chess—exploring the intersection of fashion and chess through the archetypes of the Queen.

A Queen Within covers two floors at the World Chess Hall of Fame and explores nine archetypes of the Queen: Sage, Mother Figure, Magician, Enchantress, Explorer, Ruler, Mother Earth, Heroine and Thespian. 

The story of each persona—its powers, its weaknesses, its significance, its sacrifice—is told through examples of fashion, photography, film and artwork. 

“We have designed the exhibition itself to be a 3,200 square foot piece of art that viewers can experience on many different levels. They’ll be able to look closely for hidden symbols, stand back to appreciate the overall effect of enveloping visuals and think deeply about the meaning of each theme,” —Sofia Hedman, curator.
