For the seventh year in a row, HCC has been selected to receive a piece of public art through the Howard County Arts Council’s ARTsites program, an initiative to generate interest in public art and make art more accessible to the community.  The college’s newest ARTsites sculpture is Tidal Reach by Maryland artist, Bobby Donovan. Tidal Reach is now located on the crest of the hill along Campus Drive near the athletics and fitness building. The piece is comprised of pine, cedar, steel, and marine paint. Standing at 15’ in height, Tidal Reach will be visible to HCC visitors through the summer of 2019. In his artist statement Donovan says, “Tidal reach is a term used to indicate the farthest point upstream where a river is affected by tidal fluctuations. This fascinates me because finding such a point is about delineating the peripheral border where one thing connects to another.”
