Dylan Wolfe Featured in Juried Art Exhibit May 14-June 11
MCCC Communication Professor Dylan Wolfe, director of The Gallery at Mercer, will have work on display at Artworks, Trenton's downtown visual arts center located at 19 Everett Alley, from May 14 through June 11. The exhibit, "Trashed," is presented in cooperation with TerraCycle, a Trenton-based recycling company. The juried exhibition features work based on the concept of "upcycling," the conversion of waste into new, more valuable products, such as art. The aim of these works is to educate the viewer about upcycling, and delaying and preventing the accumulation of solid waste through upcycling waste into art. The opening reception will be Saturday, May 14, from 6-8 p.m. Learn more about Artworks and the exhibit here.


Volunteers Needed for Commencement May 19
From Danielle Garruba, Student Life and Leadership: As we plan for Commencement, which will be held on Thursday, May 19 at 5:30 p.m. on the Quad, we need your help with the graduation ceremony. We need marshals dressed in graduation attire to assist students with seating and to direct them for photographs. Marshals will be needed until the end of the Commencement Ceremony. We also need assistance with line-up and the distribution of programs. We need help with these tasks before the Commencement Ceremony begins. As this is a college-wide event, we are asking for your participation. Please email garrubad@mccc.edu to volunteer for this important event.
