Academic Lecture Series

Covenant is pleased to welcome Bruce Herman, department chair and professor of art at Gordon College, as the featured speaker for the College’s annual Academic Lecture Series.


Herman earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts from Boston University School for the Arts. After joining the faculty at Gordon College in 1984, Herman became Gordon’s first art department chair in 1988. He received the Junior Distinguished Faculty Award in 1992 and now serves as the Lothlórien Distinguished Chair in the Fine Arts. Herman’s work has been exhibited around the country and internationally, as well as featured in numerous books, journals, and magazines.


In addition to presenting three academic lectures, the College will host a reception for Herman’s artwork, featured in the Kresge Memorial Library gallery. Herman’s installation titled “Ordinary Saints: On Facing, Servitude, and Submission” features nine portraits of ordinary men and women. Herman will present a lecture following the art gallery reception.


All lectures are free and open to the public.
