The 80sHEAVIES is a group of Alumni from Howard University, College of Fine Arts who met on campus during the 1980s. Together they studied under great artists, instructors and art historians and were initiated into the proud tradition and rich heritage of the now Chadwick A. Boseman Fine Arts College of Howard University. Labeled “the Heavies” by instructor and sculptor Ed Love, they challenged one another to think and create differently by always asking the 2nd and 3rd why in their quest toward achieving success in visual expression and deepened understanding in purpose and process of creating. Back together, after 30+ years they are still challenging one another to reach higher levels of creative thinking with a focus on the Black Experience; Social, Personal and Spiritual.
