Promoting creative spirit

Spring 2013 | Archives

Creativity isn't limited to the arts. More and more, people recognize that the arts, creativity and innovation are woven into the fabric of diverse fields. From IT to history, the trades to theatre, the arts can enhance student engagement and learning and unlock creative thinking and innovation.

Reflecting this idea, MCC is engaged in multiple efforts this year that bring disciplines together through artistic, cultural and creative endeavors.


Original Works @ MCC

Led by MCC's Institute for Cultural Connections, this series showcases student talent and achievements in diverse fields. A reception on May 17, 4–6 p.m. in Fort Omaha Campus, Building 21, will recognize student projects and include an exposition of student work. The group also compiles and promotes events with student work.


Culture Corps

This new group connects students with the community through cultural experiences and offers a forum for students to bring those experiences back to the classroom. As part of this engagement process, students are encouraged to share their talents. The group kicks off with a party on March 21, 11 a.m.–1 p.m. in the Fort Omaha Campus, Building 10, cafeteria.


Buffalo Robe Project

Last year, students across disciplines came together to produce a winter count, a traditional means of documenting history among several Native American Plains tribes. The winter count was painted by students on a traditional brain-tanned buffalo hide that was gifted to MCC in 2011 by guest artist and scholar Steve Tamayo. The finished project will be installed this spring in the Fort Omaha Campus, Building 21.
