Through the use of replicated forms taken from dated, often times antiquated objects; I attempt to represent the relationship between the existing and the existed. Much like snapshots taken out of the context of time, each object represents a moment within its previous reality. It is through the representational compiling of moments in time that a new structure is formed, dictated by each individual unit placement in the whole. In choosing to use glass within my work, I attempt to relate the individual objects to an ethereal realm with the aid of the material’s transparent yet structural qualities. Maintaining an earthly presence, the object is grounded under its material weight and through its delicate nature, discussing a tactile existence in which fragility undermines all existing structures present. Through the introduction of flaws often times contrasted by mechanical enrichment, a balance between purity and discord exist.

HCC at 50: A Blast from the Past - Daily Life from the First Two Decades
On behalf of the Howard Community College (HCC) 50th Anniversary History Committee, we are pleased to present this collection of photos from the college archives. This collection presents photographs and documents depicting daily life on the HCC campus during the first two decades. From its earliest years, HCC has been more than just a place of scholarship, but has served as a locality for events, personal and community growth, and diversity.
We hope that you enjoy this look back at some familiar faces, now-gone locations, fun events, as well as a look into the inner workings of what made our campus tick in the 1970’s and 1980’s. While not all photos have attributions, we must acknowledge the early work of Quent Kardos, who was the college photographer through this time period. His lens did not just capture the events at hand, but also the character of the places and people in these images.
We hope you enjoy this look back and find, as we did, some of what makes Howard Community College a great place to learn, work, and grow. On behalf of the 50th Anniversary History Committee:
Janelle Broderick, Brian Cumer, Thomas Engelman, Rosemary Williams

What’s Going On? American Politics 1970–2020 Time: 6:00pm - 7:00pm Locations: Online Details:
Talk by Dr. Michael Heffren, professor of social sciences
In 1970, the year that Howard Community College opened, the country was deeply divided with political protest, social unrest, conflicts over racism, and urban riots. Marvin Gaye wrote the song “What’s Going On” that year to ask the question, “Why?” We could ask that same question today. Is this a case of the more things change, the more they stay the same? In fact, it’s quite different. In this talk, trace the changes in American politics over the past 50 years and try to answer the question: “What’s Going On”?
Free and open to the public, this series is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Columbia Patuxent. Participants are asked to RSVP at howardcc.edu/lectureseries or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about accessing the virtual lectures will be provided closer to the event date.About the Speaker: Dr. Michael Heffren received his B.A. from King’s College (Pennsylvania), and his M.A. and Ph.D from Rutgers University. His dissertation was entitled “The Decline of Liberalism in the United States: A Class Relations Perspective.” His area of specialization was political sociology. Dr. Heffren has been teaching full time at HCC since fall 2000 and currently serves as the coordinator for political science courses.
