    • Cultural Affairs - Spring 2020
    • HCCC’s Department of Cultural Affairs will continually provide art information and activities for all ages to enjoy whether you are working remotely, learning from home or just want to connect socially with people in our community. Our focus now is the same as it’s always been — ensuring you are experiencing a variety of arts-related educational programs that help unite our greater community. We will continue to provide social interactive experiences by establishing a grander arts online presence during this time while our department and the Dineen Hull Gallery remain closed to the public.

      Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and soon on LinkedIn and Twitter as we expand Live from Dineen Hull Gallery. Join us for a Daily Art Dose each day to be inspired by following all of our social media accounts. For monthly updates, sign up for our MailChimp newsletter here.
