The Department of Cultural Affairs celebrates diversity year-round with a variety of educational programs throughout each semester. Past programs include New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of classic Bollywood music, Indie Female Filmmakers Screenings, and interview with Tamika Palmer, mother of Breonna Taylor. Programs are hosted on the 6th floor of the Gabert Library, conveniently located across from the Journal Square transportation hub. All programs are free and open to the public.
Every Semester, the Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery presents a variety of exhibitions, including Teacher As Artist at the Journal Square and North Hudson Campus Libraries. The gallery is a large, newly-renovated exhibition space with Manhattan views that stretch from the Statue of Liberty to the upper west side of Manhattan. With each exhibition, the gallery provides exposure to both local and international talents, highlights creative faculty members, facilitates an easy visitor-friendly experience, and hosts a wide array of artistic styles and themes to mirror the diversity of our student population and the Hudson County community.
The Foundation Arts Collection is prominently displayed in public spaces throughout the entire Hudson campus. Over a thousand art works in a variety of mediums showcase both local and international artists. Each piece is curated with exhibition text to educate and hearten the walls and corridors of Hudson County Community College.
Hudson County Community College’s Visual Arts program is one of the strongest in the New Jersey area with exhibiting artists leading a variety of educational initiatives. Each semester ends with a student exhibition in the Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery. The exhibition highlights our student’s creative achievements in a variety of traditional art mediums as well as the digital arts.
Hudson’s Performing Arts program thrives with the newest addition of HCCC’s Black Box Theater. The theater is state-of-the-art hosting classes and plays for Hudson’s emerging actors and playwrights. Each end-of-semester theater festival celebrates our student talent and showcases the department as a special place within the Hudson community.
Literary Arts at HCCC are highly represented and encouraged among students and faculty alike. Our community publications include Crossroads (student), Perennial (faculty), alongside a wide variety of poetry and spoken word performances hosted regularly collegewide.
