All Day Cast: New Work by Pat Falco (Multi-Day Event)
Click here to RSVP

Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, February 2, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: February 2–March 30
Hollister Gallery
 
A keen observer of the world around him, Pat Falco uses a street art graphic drawing style and hand-printed text to reflect with honesty and wit on both social and personal issues. He chooses mis-tinted paints and found objects for his art surfaces, because, as he says, “I’d like not to make more waste than is already here.” Consumer culture, interpersonal relationships, the art world, our current political climate, heartbreak, gentrification, socioeconomic stratification, and fear of failure are a just a few of the themes where he mines incongruities for humor and pathos.

2017 Black Affinity Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The Diversity Connect Event is an exclusive opportunity for sponsors, employers and multicultural groups to network with student leaders, alumni and members of Babson College’s underrepresented minority populations as part of the Black Affinity Conference Weekend. This event will provide a venue for employers and groups from varying industries to come together, connect with students and alumni, network, and build their brand with Babson to grow their talent pipeline.

Compared to the traditional “career fair”, this event will allow employers and affinity groups to meet a broader pool of candidates who are interested in exploring varying career and volunteer opportunities. This event will be open to current undergraduate and graduate students as well as Babson alumni.

All participants will have the chance to share their story and available opportunities in an open forum networking event. In addition, there will be a special multicultural career development panel discussion in the final hour of programming.
