Seven installations spotlight research projects from Community College of Philadelphia students on topics including the Black church, LGBTQIA+ inclusion, and public art in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA – The Presbyterian Historical Society (PHS), the oldest denominational archive in the United States, will host an opening reception for its Building Knowledge and Breaking Barriers (BKBB) exhibit. The public reception and exhibition, previously postponed due to the pandemic, will spotlight seven installations constructed by Community College of Philadelphia (College) students focused on melding current events with Presbyterian history.
Three outdoor and four indoor installations will be on display at PHS during the reception with the opportunity for guests to meet the students responsible for the research and execution of the project. BKBB is an archives-based learning project that for two years has brought educators and students from CCP together with PHS to explore more than 500 years of history.
An interactive digital exhibit of all eight student installations is available at www.bkbbphilly.org.
