HCC Permanent Collection

January 25 – March 4, 2021
Gallery3 | 3rd floor DLRC

From modest beginnings in the late 1970s and early 1980s, HCC’s visual art galleries have brought ambitious and compelling exhibitions to Tampa Bay for over four decades. Over the years, the close connections forged between HCC’s galleries and the arts community resulted in the establishment of a Permanent Art Collection. Today, the Permanent Art Collection has grown to represent a range of artistic perspectives, media and styles with an emphasis on strong artistic talent from the region. This exhibition represents a selection of those acquisitions curated by the College’s current professional gallery staff.
