Prof. Chandler has created controversial, political-themed art for decades and, on the next two episodes, we'll discuss how that art is relevant to today's events. In Part 1, we will display and discuss specific pieces created between 1967-1990. If you love Chandler's art and/or outsider art, you don't want to miss these shows! 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. Because he continues to evolve, his messages change to reflect his personal evolution, he is still an interesting, provocative speaker who can speak and/or lecture brilliantly about the historical relevance of his art and his activism to the worldwide struggle for race and gender equality as well as bridge the generation gap that is confounding this country’s leadership and confronting America as we move into the “internationalist” phase of our own evolution.
