The annual MCC Student Art and Design Exhibition reception and awards ceremony has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 20, from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Overbrook Lobby and Gallery.

Artwork of outstanding merit produced by MCC’s leading art and graphic design students over the past academic year will be eligible for cash awards, including $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 awards will be announced at 5:30pm

This year’s awards juror is Brett Colley, art professor at Grand Valley State University. Mr. Colley’s drawings were recently featured in the exhibit “With Apologies to the Future” in the MCC Overbrook Gallery this past fall. He will provide comments on the award winning pieces during the reception.   

The student 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.
