    • The Hudson County Community College
      Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery

      At its October 2013 meeting, the Hudson County Community College Board of Trustees affirmed resolutions to accept a historic gift of more than 400 works of art from the personal collection of Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull. The Board also voted to name the gallery space in the College’s Gabert Library Building in honor of the couple.

      The collection of works presented to the College includes contemporary art, largely works on paper, from major and emerging New Jersey and American artists. In addition to the art itself, the gift also included a significant amount of ephemera and provenance documentation affiliated with the works, as well as a number of reference books that will be utilized in the College’s Gabert library. The gift helped make the HCCC Foundation Art Collection one of the finest of any college in the country.

      Mr. Dineen, who was Director of Development for United Way of Hudson County and a member of the Hudson County Community College Foundation Board of Directors, passed away in April 2014. He and Mr. Hull, a retired teacher who now works at the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers, were life partners who enriched the lives of the people of Hudson County by dedicating their time, expertise and resources to several individuals and organizations. Over the years, they generously contributed to the College’s Foundation and the Foundation Art Collection. Mr. Dineen and Mr. Hull were also advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in our area and worked tirelessly to improve the rights and quality of life of all people.

      The College is deeply grateful to Ben Dineen and Dennis Hull for their dedication and generosity. We are proud to call them friends and to name the new gallery in their honor.

      Situated on the top floor of the College’s Gabert Library Building at 71 Sip Avenue in Jersey City, the Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery will be the site for several notable exhibits throughout the year. Please CLICK HERE to view this season's offerings.
