The Art Department at GCC is dedicated to sharing the vision and voices of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff. We have developed an initiative for the distribution and display of representative artworks throughout the various campus locations.
This initiative has been made possible by the generous support of Mike and Joan Haley (and the resulting creation of the Mike and Joan Haley Collection), the GCC art faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
When complete, the Mike and Joan Haley Collection will consist of artworks created by GCC students, alumni, faculty, and staff. As a collection, this work will reflect the recent history of the Art Department at GCC and is designed to evoke the diversity and shared vision of students and faculty alike and to promote a critical dialog around the nature of art making within our community.
Faculty work is selected during the annual art faculty exhibit; retired faculty and alumni work is selected from on-campus exhibits.
Student/staff work is selected for purchase once a year during the annual Art Student Exhibit, which runs through mid-April to mid-May. All work is selected bythe Art Department full-time faculty. The selection process is based on the following criteria:

Due to the limited nature of the funds at our disposal, only a select number of purchases may be made each year. Several of our students and alumni elect to loan or donate their work instead. The Art Department and the college are indebted to their generosity and commitment to the arts at GCC.
