HCC Art Galleries
The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery
This gallery is devoted to bringing quality exhibits to Howard County that reflect the diverse range of visual art in America and beyond. The gallery staff is motivated to educate, inspire, and elevate the HCC community with interesting, informative, and provocative shows.
Art Department Gallery
The Gallery is devoted to exhibiting the artists in the college community; giving our students, alumni, and community artists the experience of organizing and presenting art work done locally. The Gallery is scheduled in coordination with the director of visual arts and the art faculty when appropriate. Letters of interest from community arts organizations are welcome.
Monday–Sunday, 10a.m.–9:30p.m. The gallery is closed if the college is closed. The gallery administrators reserve the right to amend gallery hours for reasons of security.
The HCC Dance Department collaborates with the Arts Collective and the Horowitz Center to produce multiple events each season. The Dance Faculty Concert features the choreographed work and performance of HCC dance faculty members. The Arts Collective Dance Company features HCC dance students. The annual Howard County Community Dance Festival provides an opportunity for local dancers to learn, share and enjoy their craft.
The HCC Film Program has developed a number of film series to complement various productions and events this season. All films are shown free to the public. Visit our website for up-to-date information about our film festivals and programs.
The Music Department is pleased to present Tom Benjamin, Amit Peled, William Bolcom & Joan Morris, and Anne Koscielny in our 2013–2014 Guest Artist Series. Each one of these phenomenal artists will give a concert and a master class in the acoustically beautiful Monteabaro Recital Hall. Our Faculty Concert Series continues with delightful programs featuring beloved classical instrumental and vocal chamber works as well as jazz standards. We invite you to be a part of our growing Student Ensemble and Spotlight Concert Series too.
HCC Theatre Department
The HCC Theatre Department is devoted to offering relevant and educational on and off stage experiences for students to augment their classroom learning and provide valuable performing opportunities. It is in this vein that we offer additional works throughout our season including a fall play production, staged readings, informal showcases, and an exciting Shakespeare birthday celebration performance.
Rep Stage is HCC’s professional Equity theatre in residence. Their 21st season explores concepts of time and memories through the eyes of a young woman hoping to fill her family house with her own memories; a German transvestite who recalls surviving both the Nazi and East German communist regimes; the conflicting and often chilling reminiscences of a middle-aged piano teacher and her former students; and, through the gifts of imagination, music, moonlight, and magic with a girl, a boy, two fathers, and a wall, as we “try to remember when life was so tender….” The 2013–2014 season will also continue to provide theatre lovers with free events, such as the Rep Stage Reading Series, pre-show lectures, post-show discussions, and Wednesday Pay-What- You-Can performances and special events.
