HACC Increases On-Campus Class Offerings for Fall 2021 Semester
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, will extend its mostly remote online instruction and student services through the fall 2021 semester. However, as a result of the decline of COVID-19 cases, HACC’s reported cases of COVID-19 remaining low, the state’s heightened vaccination plan and the announced ease of mitigation restrictions, the College will increase the number of approved on-campus classes offered and bring select student services back to campus by appointment.

‘Black Hearted Kings: A State of Higher Learning’ at HACC’s Midtown

Exhibit opens at Fenêtre Gallery May 18 for 3rd in the Burg

"Black Hearted Kings: A State of Higher Learning" exhbit at Midtown galleryHARRISBURG – Midtown’s new gallery at HACC will feature the exhibit, “Black Hearted Kings: A State of Higher Learning,” beginning Friday, May 18, at the new Fenêtre Gallery on the second floor of Midtown 2 on the corner of Third and Reily streets. The exhibit opens with a reception 6-8 p.m. during Harrisburg’s “3rd in the Burg” and continues through June 8.
Artists Garrick Dorsett and Zack Rudy have been collaborating as The Huckle Buckle Boys for several years. They have shown their work together in Rochester, N.Y., and several venues in the Harrisburg area. A large installation resides at the Midtown Arts Center.
Both artists have varied backgrounds that includes graffiti as well as more traditional painting, photography and drawing.
“Black Hearted Kings: A State of Higher Learning” is about Dorsett and Rudy and their development as artists and men. To the artists, life is full of small betrayals, sometimes larger disappointments, and events that can’t be controlled. What you do in the face of adversity is what that makes you who you are. Imagery of black hearts and dunce figures in the exhibit allude to this process of maturing.
Dorsett works in the HACC photography department and teaches photography and glass. He received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. His photography has been published in Photo Monthly Magazine and International Photography.
Rudy is a student at HACC and also works in the art department. He is an accomplished printmaker, illustrator and fine artist. For many years, he created concept art and illustrations for video gaming and tattoo artists. He has created murals for historic houses and restaurants. He has received recognition for customized motorcycle painting.
