On Thursday, September 27, 2018, Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) President Pam Eddinger welcomed Distinguished Artist Scholar in Residence Dr. Robin M. Chandler at a preview reception for the artist’s “Revolutionary Moments” exhibition at the Mary L. Fifield Art Gallery.

At the reception, President Eddinger described her vision for the residency as a way for students to have meaningful interactions with art and practicing artists, and its role in the College’s commitment to equity and preparing students to be agents of social change.

“We need artists, we need musicians, we need dancers, we need filmmakers, to be able to tell stories that can inspire and direct us towards a better society,” said Dr. Chandler. “Bringing different skills and knowledge to our society is going to make all the difference in the world.”

Co-sponsored by the President’s Office and Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth, the inaugural residency will include Dr. Chandler’s “Revolutionary Moments” exhibition, an interdisciplinary multimedia exhibition of visual art, poetry and scholarship narrating a career of practice in art production, social sciences and service to humanity, as well as a spring exhibition curated by the Distinguished Artist Scholar in Residence.
