Last year, distinguished MCCC Painting and Art History professor Mel Leipzig did a portrait of four of his art students -- Jon Allen, Clint Inting, Olivia Jupillat, and Sid Whitfield -- with their artwork behind them. Two graduated from MCCC last year, but Leipzig was so taken with their work that he suggested an exhibition of their current work.
