Read about recent events, hosted by Packer!
Alumni, friends, faculty, and former faculty caught up with Eric Lee at the opening of his exhibit “Finding Our Place” at Packer. Eric is a freelance photojournalist whose work has been featured in NPR, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and other publications. Most recently, he covered the impact of Covid-19, the response to anti-Asian hatred, protests against police brutality, the 2020 presidential election, the January 6th insurrection, and more.
Eric was also a guest at Packer in Action, an annual Packer program where students, faculty, teachers, and students, discuss issues related to visibility, inclusion and racial justice. He spoke to students about his work and his life experiences as an Asian American and Packer alumnus.
On Thursday, March 31 members of Packer’s Pelicans of Color (Alumni and Upper School Students of Color), attended a special meetup to tour the Whitney Museum. They engaged in discussions about the work of Jennifer Packer (no relation), who creates evocative paintings of Black figures.
