Faculty, staff and students enjoyed a sumptuous luncheon reception, hosted by the Annandale Campus library, for “artivist” Ronald Cortez Herd II, also known as R2C2H2.
Against a background display of Herd’s art (he works in ink, wite-out®, acrylics and markers), he signed copies of his award-winning book, James Reese Europe: Jazz Lieutenant, the true story of a jazz pioneer and World War I hero. Herd guest-lectured in several classes, including Theresa McFadden’s (art), Ray Orkwis’ (English) and Herb Smith’s (music).

In addition to his art and writing, Herd plays the cornet and trumpet. You can view his artwork at the library through December.
