Investors Bank Continues Support of MCCC's Trenton Hall Annex


TRENTON – The Art Gallery at Trenton Hall on Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) James Kerney Campus just got a step closer to opening, thanks in part to the presentation of a check for $20,000, the second installment of a three-year grant totaling $60,000 from Investors Bank.

The art gallery will be housed in the annex, a three-story, 8,500-square-foot building on MCCC’s James Kerney Campus on North Broad Street in Trenton. In addition to the street-level gallery, the space also will have a multipurpose community room, perfect for hosting small community events and concerts. The gallery will specialize in the photographic arts and will present a special show each semester featuring local artists. With the community room, the gallery will be available for a variety of college and community activities. The building also will house MCCC’s new programs in security systems technology, cybersecurity, and existing classes in the health sciences.

The total cost of the project is $5.9 million, and is expected to open in August.

MCCC applied for the grant from Investors Bank Foundation and the Roma Community Bank Foundation, which support non-profit organizations that enrich communities served by Investors Bank. Roma Bank became part of Investors Bank in December 2013.

“Aiding in the renaissance of Trenton is very important to Investors Bank,” said Paul Kalamaras, Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Banking Officer for Investors. “The art gallery not only will enhance MCCC’s presence in the community, but provide opportunities for the general public to access art and other cultural experiences.”

“With the addition of the Trenton Hall Annex, students at the James Kerney Campus will have access to an education in cutting-edge careers that are in high demand,” said MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang. “Thanks to the generosity of Investors Bank, the public will enjoy a public space featuring the work of talented artists from throughout the Trenton region.”
