The Faculty Art Show of 2024

The faculty art show opens successfully again as it has for the past 22 years, with only a few exceptions due to COVID-19 hardships.

Four faculty artists and their unique collections of art, Susan Rochester, Noelle Herceg, Tiffany Hokanson and Greg Price are the focus of this year’s annual faculty art show. 

Rochester has been teaching at UCC for 22 years while also serving as curator for all of the campus artwork. UCC has the biggest art collection in Douglas County made up of over 75 current works being displayed across campus. One of these pieces of art is the UCC fountain in front of the admin building. Part of Rochester’s mission has been to display the collection pieces in significant locations that help amplify the art’s message.

Art is still seen, for the most part, as something that relies on being viewed in person and as a cultural experience largely reserved for a ‘certain type’ of person. The art world can feel exclusionary on many grounds: geography (most larger galleries are in big cities like London, New York, or Berlin), accessibility (little provision been made has historically for things like disabilities and neurodivergence), diversity (of staff, artists, themes), and more.

In the early days of lockdown, many galleries attempted new ways of showing art, often through online 3D walkthrough experiences, with varying success. In the years since, we’ve seen further significant shifts in how we interact with culture: the post-pandemic world is one of ‘phygital’ spaces, augmented realities, and new experiments in the gallery-from-home experience from NFTs to immersive takes on Van Gogh.
