A high point of the year for the Arts and Humanities Department at MCC, the annual Student Art and Design Exhibition in Overbrook Gallery showcases outstanding artwork created by MCC’s art and graphic design students over the past academic year.
The artwork is selected by MCC art and design faculty from several thousand pieces produced by more than 500 students. Only a small portion of this total amount comprises the annual exhibit.
The public can view the exhibit free of charge. Overbrook Art Gallery summer hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon on Friday. Please call 777-0324 for more information.
