Student Art and Design Exhibit Opens in Overbrook

Student artwork on display in Overbrook Gallery

The 51st Annual MCC Student Art and Design Exhibition, which opened on May 18, will be on display in Overbrook Art Gallery until September 16. Admission is free.

The exhibit celebrates the exceptional artwork created by MCC’s art and graphic design students over the past academic year. MCC art and design faculty reviewed several thousand pieces produced by more than 500 students and selected only a small portion of this total amount for the annual exhibit.

An awards reception takes place on Tuesday, June 9, from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Overbrook lobby. Light refreshments will be served. The awards will be announced at 5:30 p.m. in Overbrook Theater. Cash awards will be presented, including $400 for first place, $300 for second place, $200 for third place, and $100 for honorable mentions. In addition, the President’s Purchase Awards for the permanent MCC Art Collection will be announced.

Place awards are selected by an independent juror who is a practicing art professional. This year, Ken Foster, a retired MCC art faculty member, will judge the entries.

Gallery summer hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Please call (231) 777-0324 for more information.
