Launch the Virtual Tour
As the NC Community College System celebrates its 50th Anniversary, we requested historical art as well as the traditional art that has been displayed. This Art Exhibition includes self portraits, pottery, quilts, acrylics, watercolor, sculpture, metal-working, and even a portrait of Dr. Dallas Herring, known as our philosophical godfather, on a matchbook. These pieces are all part of the 2013-15 NC Community Colleges 50th Anniversary Special Edition of the Art Exhibition, a 139-piece collection representing the creative talents from our community college system. The exhibition, which will run through January 2015, is located in the Caswell Building in Raleigh, the home of the community colleges’ System Office and is available by virtual tour by clicking: Launch the Virtual Tour.
Some of the artists provided a brief story about the inspiration for their creative endeavor. You may read the story behind the art by simply clicking “about,” located next to the art title.
Under the leadership of Bill Gregory, the art was hung by our very
own community college students at Johnston Community College's Fine Arts Department.
Johnston Community College is home to the Frank Creech Art Gallery.
