Annual MCC Student Art and Design Exhibit in Overbrook

Monday, May 20, 2013

The annual MCC Student Art and Design Exhibition, a high point each year for the MCC Arts and Humanities Department, opened on May 18 and continues  throughout the summer in Overbrook Art Gallery on the MCC campus.

The artwork is selected by MCC’s art and design faculty from a total of several thousand pieces produced by over 500 students. Only a small portion of this total amount comprises the annual exhibit. Overbrook Art Gallery summer hours are 9:00am-4:00pm Monday-Friday. Please call (231) 777-0324 for more information.

On Thursday, June 13, a free public reception and awards ceremony will take place in Overbrook Lobby and Gallery. The awards will be given at 5:30 p.m., with the reception running from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Awards being presented include: $400 First Place, $300 Second Place, $200 Third Place, and $100 Honorable Mentions. In addition, The President’s Purchase Awards for the MCC Art Collection will be announced. The Place Awards are selected by an independent juror who is a practicing art professional. This year’s awards juror, Brett Colley, is an art professor at Grand Valley State University whose drawings were featured last autumn in the exhibit “With Apologies to the Future” in the MCC Overbrook Gallery. He will provide comments on the award winning pieces during the reception.
