Wabanaki Drum Group Members Perform, Reminisce with Sisters, and Visit Freight Farm

The Center for Faith and Spirituality and the Center for Sustainable Communities were pleased to welcome The Burnurwurbskek Singers — the Keepers of the Penobscot Drum — to campus in October to share their traditional music and experiences of life on reservations today with students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the public. Several Sisters of Mercy attended the event, which led to much fond reminiscing about shared family history and the Sisters' time spent serving in several Wabanaki communities across the state.


Just as an education in art is open to individual interpretation, so too is a career in art. Work as a photographer, art editor, graphic designer, web designer, illustrator, exhibit and scenic designer, in the museum field, or for a non-profit.
