Bogus Boutique Exhibit

  • Through April 5
  • Monday-Thursday, 8:30 AM to 7 PM and Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
  • Harford Community College, Student Center, Chesapeake Gallery

"The Bogus Boutique is a lifestyle brand featuring unique, brightly colored ceramic objects and status symbols. These everyday objects foretell the ironic codification of consumer culture as it embodies our current society. Questioning the notion that ordinary objects can become an ‘object of art,’ Bogus encourages a debate about authorship and originality, dissolving the distinction between sanctioned museum pieces and iconic everyday consumed objects."- David Bogus

Lecture: Maryland Women’s Suffrage Movement

  • March 14 (Thursday), 6:30-8 PM, Hays-Heighe House at Harford Community College

The lecture will be led by Kacy Rohn, Community Development Coordinator for city of College Park, MD. Maryland was not among the 36 states whose ratification of the 19th Amendment affirmed women’s suffrage as part of the Constitution, and was unable to ratify until 1941. That does not mean that there was minimal activity by suffragists in Maryland; indeed, proximity to Washington D.C. in some ways made it ground zero. Historic preservationist and community planner Kacy Rohn researched suffrage activities in Maryland, and with the support of the Maryland Historic Trust, created a Story Map of important people, places, and events. Reservations strongly recommended; haysheighe@harford.edu or 443-412-2539
