      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:

      Talk by Dr. Alejandro Muzzio, instructor of anthropology

      Culture informs every aspect of the human experience, and yet the word "culture" remains obscure. Relying on storytelling, the foundation of the human experience, Dr. Muzzio will share a wide array of humorous, engaging, and compelling personal narratives. Taking you from the jungles of Honduras to the highways of Howard County, we will collectively seek an awareness of what informs our understanding of reality.

      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 foundation@howardcc.edu. Information about accessing the virtual lectures will be provided closer to the event date.

      About the Speaker: Dr. Alejandro Muzzio holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Iowa. In fall 2020, he received Howard Community College’s Student Choice Award for faculty member of the year. Prior to joining the college, Dr. Muzzio taught for five years in the City Colleges of Chicago. His research interests include impacts of tourism on indigenous communities, revolutionary movements, and immigrant entrepreneurship in the U.S

      Join our film club! With the pandemic closing so many in-person options, we are holding our traditional film festivals virtually, taking advantage of as many popular streaming formats as possible, and encouraging film fans to join us for Friday Film discussions. It is like a book club, but with films -- you choose the films you are interested in from the list, you watch them on your own before the scheduled discussion, and you join the discussions on Friday evenings via Zoom. Discussions will be moderated by film professors Marie Westhaver and Mike Giuliano, as well as partners in the Howard County Library system and the Howard Community College library.

      VIEW EXHIBIT

      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
