Art Collection

Adam Grant - Next Exit The vast MCCC Art Collection has grown mostly through donations by our visiting artists and become the “largest collection of any college in Michigan outside universities with museums,” according to state auditors who visited back in the early 2000s. Funding for the development of a publication cataloging the collection was made possible by The Foundation at MCCC’s Cultural Enrichment Endowment. 

The publication was designed by Doug Richter, MCCC’s graphic designer, and written and edited by Paul Hedeen, retired dean of the Humanities/Social Sciences Division. It was made possible with the help of the contributing artists; Gary Wilson, associate professor of art emeritus and co-curator; Ted Vassar, assistant professor of art emeritus and co-curator; Richter; Hedeen; Mark Spenoso, photographer; the Office of Marketing and Communications (project management); Josh Myers, executive director of The Foundation at MCCC (project management); Therese O’Halloran, assistant professor of art and consultant, and our donors.
