According to Gallery Director Lucas Kelly, MCCC Professor of Fine Arts, the faculty show is an opportunity for students to see the fruits of their professors’ studio practice.

“Professors maintain their professional practice while also working with students in the classroom. Both parts of this duality inform each other. Seldom does a professor's studio work enter the classroom, but it is their experience that moves the curriculum forward. The faculty show offers the students a chance to pull back that veil and see how their professors solve the problem of art-making in contemporary culture,” Kelly said.
