Pearl Harbor service

 

Boston’s annual Pearl Harbor Day memorial service will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7 at the Charlestown Navy Yard. Pearl Harbor survivors and friends will host this service adjacent to the World War II destroyer USS Cassin Young, commemorating the 1941 surprise attack by the Japanese on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. U.S. Navy Commander Young was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the attack.

 

The National Parks of Boston, USS Constitution, Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston and the USS Constitution Museum will honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the United States and those who continue to do so today. A wreath will be laid from the stern of USS Cassin Young.

 

A luncheon will follow in the USS Constitution Museum, courtesy of the City of Boston’s Veterans Services Department.

 

The National Park Service and volunteers maintain the USS Cassin Young as a living memorial to the men and women who built, repaired and served on Navy ships throughout the nation’s history.

Revolutionary moments

 

Bunker Hill Community College, 250 New Rutherford Ave., is displaying “Revolutionary Moments: Art, the Word and Social Action,” works by Robin M. Chandler, now to Jan. 10 at the Mary L. Fifield Gallery.

 

For the last decade Dr. Chandler has experimented with multimedia applications and digital technology to explore studio production and 2 and 3-D projects.

 

As a collage artist, she uses sketches, hand cut ‘drawings’, photographs, digitized images and handmade papers to construct traditional and digital collage works, some large scale.

 

She has produced several “series” with seven or nine works in each series such as “The Seven Valleys,” a meditation on spiritual journeying produced in France in 2009, the “Peace Series,” a set of nine collages that demonstrated humanity’s evolution in the stages of peace and war, and the “Stone Tablets” series.

 

Her themes cover broad global issues of peace making, the meaning of freedom and trans-cultural heritage and identity.

 

The exhibit is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
