Upcoming Events and Activities

UCC Student Art Showcase in the Art Gallery at UCC, Whipple Fine Arts Building. The Student Art Showcase is an annual, juried art show. The selections are not revealed to the public until the opening of the exhibit. Nearly 200 students submitted over 400 works of art for consideration by the jury, who selected fewer than 100 pieces. This is one of the strongest student shows in recent years, and demonstrates the commitment our students have to perfecting their vision and techniques. Mediums include ceramics, drawing, illustration, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Come visit the gallery today!
