Call in to speak with the host
In 1978, Prof. Dana C. Chandler, Jr., opened the doors to a program that had been his vision for several years--the African American Master Artist-in-Residency Program at Northeastern University. He ran the program for 25 years, until his ouster in 2003.
But, what is AAMARP, why was it so important to the Black Art community in its heyday and what happened to the program with the end of Chandler's tenure? We'll discuss these questions and more on this episode.
Called "controversial", a "Black Power Artist", "activist artist" and "Outsider Artist", Chandler, 70, was born in 1941 in Lynn, MA. He is best known for the edgy, colorful, controversial and hotly-debated artistic statements of his 1960’s-1980’s works.
