The Arts

The arts at HCC come alive in the Peter and Elizabeth Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center. The Horowitz Center is home to the Arts and Humanities Division, performance and instructional classroom/studios.

To bring the college community closer to quality artistic expression, HCC has established a professional theatre in residence at the college. Rep Stage is HCC’s award-winning professional, Equity theatre company. The college also operates the Rouse Company Foundation Art Gallery, hosting exhibitions of professional artists and the Art Department Gallery hosting student, alumni, and community exhibitions. Additionally, HCC supports the Arts Collective, offering theatre and dance performance and technical theatre opportunities to students, alumni, and local artists, via full-length productions, showcases and special events. HCC’s Arts Collective also features an improv group, free workshops, open mics, original works and more. HCC’s Arts and Humanities Division also showcases student arts performances at the close of the fall and spring semesters, and includes student exhibits, dance recitals, music concerts and more. The HCC Music Concert Series includes guest artists, faculty concerts, student ensembles and spotlight concerts. Arts faculty and staff perform and/or exhibit artistic work regularly on campus as well. As part of its community outreach program, the college has also established noncredit arts programs for both youth and adults through The Music Institute.

Students explore the arts in an academic setting, and create their own works, in the Horowitz Center’s instructional classroom/studios. State-of-the-art ceramics, photography, painting, drawing, design and digital arts studios are available, as well as a music rehearsal hall, sound-proof practice rooms, piano lab, digital music lab, and dance studios.
