Each year, students in the Art + Design program at Harford Community College are encouraged to submit their work to the annual juried exhibition held in the Chesapeake Gallery, located in the Student Center building. This exhibition has a long tradition at HCC dating prior to the 1970’s. Thousands of students started their exhibition careers with this annual show. Over the last decade, these exhibitions have been juried by art and design professionals from the region who have recommended purchase awards for students whose work becomes permanently collected by the College and displayed in Joppa Hall.
