For two months in the summer of 2022,
the East 40 was the site of an
Artist-in-Residency by NCC Fine Arts Adjunct Faculty member Cindy Vojnovic.

Read more about her work creating natural dyes and pigments, using plants and rocks.

In the summer and fall of 2021,  the East 40 was the site of an Artist-in-Residency program for three mixed-media artists. Read more about this inaugural program.

Watch for details of an Art Exhibit & Reception featuring works from both residencies, coming September 6 - October 14.


Ceramics Program

East 40 has a long collaboration with NCC's

Art Department. The acreage serves as

the site of a wood-fired kiln that is used

by students and faculty for the

pottery they create.

the physical improvements we're working on, and our faculty.


"In the present political environment, in which discourse is neither positive nor welcoming, the garden is a positive, welcoming place for people of all backgrounds to gather in the pursuit of a common experience. This garden is a reflection of who we are at NCC."
