A new position for a Washington College professor leads to a Residency for a great artist – KCAC’s Artist in Residence, Jason Patterson.

Patterson is a history-based artist that hails from central Illinois. Patterson has relocated his studio to Chestertown, MD to research and make work on the rich African American history of Kent County. His work is focused on highlighting how our past influences our current American political and social conditions.
