Chandler in his Gallup, NM studio in 2008 with his seminal work, Fred Hampton’s Door II, which will be on exhibition at the Tate Museum in UK.

Professor Dana C. Chandler, Jr., is an internationally-celebrated, legendary activist visual artist and retired professor. His career as an activist began as a teen in with the NAACP, The New England Federation of Temple Youth, of which he was an honorary member, and The New England Conference of Christians and Jews. His art career began in high school as well where he won his first national awards for art in ninth grade. 

A 1967 MassArt alumnus, he is most well known for his seminal works in the 1960s-1980s depicting the civil rights struggle. But, he continued to produce works into the early 2000s that confronted other aspects of structural inequality and global oppression like misogyny, holocaust, genocide, and imperialism.

Chandler also is renowned for creating and founding the African-American Master Artist-in-Residency Program at Northeastern University in 1978, which he co-directed until his 1998 ouster. Chandler was a professor at Simmons College in Boston from 1971-2004 when he retired and moved to Gallup, NM where he currently resides.

With over 50 years of experience as a speaker, exhibitor, writer, and educator, he still keeps it real and relevant. In fact, Chandler’s thinking isn’t stuck in the past. Instead, he puts the past in today’s perspective for media and audiences of all types.

In his incomparable way, Prof. Chandler can talk about art, politics, socioeconomics, entertainment, family, intergenerational issues, aging, community activism, past and present, as any number of other subjects in a serious or entertaining but interactive and thought-provoking manner.
