The UCC Art Gallery is located in the Whipple Fine Arts Center. The 1,100 square foot space features six exhibits during the academic year. There is also the mezzanine gallery on the second floor of Whipple that features student art work on a continuous basis. Both galleries feature exhibits in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. The major purpose and function of the Art Gallery is to exhibit quality works of art for the education and cultural benefit of the students of UCC and the citizens of Douglas County.
UCC Annual Student Art Show
Premiering Tuesday, June 30, 2020, 2 p.m.
Each year, the College’s Department of Performing and Visual Arts holds an exhibition of student artwork to celebrate and showcase the energy, effort, and creativity of its students. The art show allows UCC to share student work with Douglas County and the broader community. In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current campus closure to in-person services, this year is no exception. UCC wants to continue this tradition, even if the exhibition is not displayed in the physical gallery.
The Virtual Exhibition will be presented as a 10-minute video that will exhibit 62 works by 46 UCC student artists. The exhibit will showcase the skills they gained in design, ceramics, drawing, and painting classes.
