MC Retired Faculty Exhibition

In honor of MC's 50th Anniversary, the McCormick Gallery will showcase work by retired faculty members from the Fine Arts Department.



The McCormick Gallery is dedicated to providing educational experiences for our students and a cultural haven for the Midland Community. Our mission is to exhibit exciting works of contemporary art from a variety of artists. A diversity of visual art mediums is represented as we attempt to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable to all members of our community.  During their visit, featured artists frequently give lectures, critiques, and demonstrations which offer unique insights into the artistic process. Each year we feature group and solo exhibitions, including the annual Midland Arts Association Fall Juried Art Exhibition as well as our Spring and Fall Student Art Show which celebrates the creative endeavors of Midland College students enrolled in studio art classes.
