The African American Master Artists in Residence Program (AAMARP) is a center of excellence in multicultural visual and performing arts dedicated to creating an enriching cultural environment for a diverse community through exhibitions, concerts, performances, lectures and workshops. Founded in 1977 by Dana Chandler, AAMARP today provides studio spaces for artists whose works has made an invaluable contribution to Northeastern University and to the vitality of the African American art scene in Boston and throughout the nation.  It remains a prominent center for discussion of the African Diaspora’s cultural growth and development.  AAMARP is an adjunct of the Department of African American Studies at Northeastern University.
