Students submit one or two pieces from each of their classes to be displayed in two separate shows in the Rose Lehrman Art Center gallery that demonstrate the breadth and depth of HACC’s art program as well as the talent and skill of the students. The faculty votes on the best submissions. Prizes are awarded for the best work in each medium. Many of the participating artists go on to study at four-year art schools, start their own businesses or work in other art-related fields.
