BHCC Launches Distinguished Artist Scholar in Residence Program
BHCC welcomed the College’s first Distinguished Artist Scholar in Residence Robin Chandler, Ph.D., at a preview reception for the artist’s Revolutionary Moments exhibition at the Mary L. Fifield Art Gallery on October 4, 2018.
As a social scientist and artist who works primarily in collage and multimedia, Chandler uses art to inspire, stimulate and promote thinking concerning unity and peace-building from the local to the global.
The residency is designed as a way for students to have meaningful interactions with art and practicing artists, and art's role in the College’s commitment to equity
and preparing students to be agents of social change.
Co-sponsored by the President’s Office and the Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth, the inaugural residency includes Chandler’s fall exhibition, an interdisciplinary multimedia exhibition of her visual art, poetry and scholarship; and in the spring, the continuing exhibition and a series of community conversations and artist talks inspired by the works on view.
