NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
Join us as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the kick off exhibit to the 2012 College-wide theme, JOURNEYS.For artist-designer Manuel Antonio Peralta, growing up as a dark-skinned Dominican in upper Manhattan’s Washington Heights/Inwood neighborhood, the child of Dominican immigrants, was an eye-opening experience. Sometimes funny, often painful, Peralta saw first-hand- via his family, friends, and society as a whole- how people process images connected with one’s physical appearance to make judgments on another person’s worth or on standards of beauty and attractiveness. It was these memories that fueled Peralta’s artistic process during the creation of COMPLEJO (COMPLEX), a thought-provoking exhibit of mixed-media silkscreens exploring complexes people have regarding hair texture, skin color, etc. Peralta hopes the series will prompt discussions about “the big elephant in the room” in Dominican and other cultures: race.
