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.
