The mission of the Highland Community College Friends of the Fine Arts is governed by the fundamental belief in the vital role that the arts play in the lives of our residents, our communities, and in the campus life of HCC students.
Additionally, the Friends of the Fine Arts strive to increase the level of participation and broaden opportunities for students of the visual and performing arts.
Membership in the Friends of the Fine Arts consists of individuals interested in furthering the educational endeavors of Highland Community College and expanding the College’s effort to enhance the culture and art community.
Annually, the HCC Friends of the Fine Arts hosts various events, including instrumental, chorale concerts, and theatre performances featuring students of music as well as drama.
The Visual Art department features student art work on display in the Highland Gallery, as well as at local area galleries. Highland also showcases student, alumni, and community artist pieces in our permanent and temporary collections.
The Friends of the Fine Arts host an annual Evening of Fine Arts dinner and auction to fund student Endowment Scholarships. These scholarships are awarded in recognition of those students who demonstrate an abiding interest and proven talent in the area of Fine Arts.

Annual dues are $35 for an Individual membership; Household/Family memberships are $50 annually. Corporate memberships are also available for businesses and corporations for $150.
