Mount Wachusett Community College welcomes Winchendon resident J. Robert Jennings for a college and community-wide discussion of his life and work as a structural engineer, environmental designer, architect, peace activist and co-founder of Noonday Farm, a nonprofit serving the residents of Winchendon with educational programs and free organic food to those in need. This event will take place at the Gardner campus in the Multi- purpose room from 12:30 - 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4.
As a structural engineer, Jennings has designed the fabrication of more than 500 large-scale sculptures for more than 150 contemporary artists. His architectural work includes multi-purpose performing arts centers, the New England Peace Pagoda and Temple in Leverett, and the Grafton Peace Pagoda and Temple in Grafton, NY.
Additionally, Jennings photographs and blueprints of many of his large-scale sculpture designs and Peace Pagodas will be on exhibit in the East Wing Gallery from March 4-25. He will be on hand for a talk about these projects March 11 from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. in the gallery.
