      February 8th - March 15th, 2021

      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 Time: 10:00am - 9:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      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

    • Inter(esting) Sex: Beyond the Binary Time: 6:00pm - 7:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      Talk by Dr. Laura Cripps, professor of anthropology

      In the words of Gloria Steinem, “the first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.” Debates on non-binary gender identities covering topics ranging from bathroom bills and educational curriculum to Sam Smith and Caitlyn Jenner have been grounded in assumptions of a binary biological classification of sex, with the supposition that gender fluidity is fundamentally unsupported by the sex-binary. Except, sex isn’t binary. This presentation will illustrate the differences between the identification of sex and gender and establish that the biological reality of non-binary sex has always been part of humanity.

      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. Laura Cripps is professor of anthropology and associate vice president of academic affairs at Howard Community College. Born and raised in Oxford, UK, her graduate research focused on archaeological methodologies and the construction of cultural identity in relation to social memories attached to the landscape.

      This event is aimed to educate the audience on the life and works of two very important African American women composers. Florence Price was an African-American classical composer, pianist, organist and music teacher. Price is noted as the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra. Margaret Bonds was an American composer, pianist, arranger, and teacher. One of the first black composers and performers to gain recognition in the United States, she is best remembered today for her popular arrangements of African-American spirituals and frequent collaborations with Langston Hughes.

      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
