The Community College of Baltimore County Opens Expansive New Gallery With Inaugural Exhibition

CCBC celebrated the opening of a new gallery at CCBC Essex with a ribbon-cutting as well as an exhibition Friday, Oct. 24 at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Blvd. The exhibition showcases the work of the Art Design and Interactive Media (ADiM) faculty and is dedicated to the memory of Mark Trojan, a longtime member of the Art, Design and Interactive Media department who passed away in 2013.

The new gallery is part of a renovation in the Arts and Humanities Hall which includes the gallery as well as office space, storage, corridors and the courtyard. Total renovation covers 4,035 sq. feet with the gallery encompassing 1,842 sq. feet. The gallery contains two projectors for digital displays, movable panels for space reconfiguration and two display windows for spotlighting and viewing specific artwork from the corridors. The structure also has an integrated green roof.

“The new gallery is a wonderful addition to our Essex campus,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “We were in great need of a space to feature the talented artistic works of our faculty and students. The new space is essential to the mission of our galleries college-wide: to enlighten, instruct and expose our students and the community to as many types and methods of visual arts and artists as possible.”
