Professional sculptor Donald Treadway, who created sculpture of Rod Carew, Jimmy Reese, and Nolan Ryan for the Anaheim Angels, will produce a full-scale replica of legendary Fullerton College football coach and Athletic Director, Hal Sherbeck, one of the most successful coaches in community college history. The bronzed image of Coach Sherbeck in his Hornet jacket, wearing his coach's headset and holding a clipboard, will face the football field.
For fifty years the Hornet sculpture, positioned outside the Student Union, welcomed Fullerton College students to the Campus Quad. Made originally of wood and fiberglass and dismantled during the construction of the new Library, the Hornet is in need of replacement and re-installation. Faculty sculptor Carl Stanaway, Stained Glass instructor Nanci Shreiber-Smith, and Welding instructor John Pummer are collaborating on an aluminum and stained glass replacement for this campus icon, which will be located at the south end of the quad and visible from Chapman Avenue.
For ten years the Rabbit, donated to Fullerton College by sculptor Richard Johnston, was located on the southeast corner of Chapman and Lemon Avenues. When a monument signs were installed on that corner, the sculpture was temporarily taken down. This project seeks financial support to return the sculpture to the campus and will involve art students and construction technology students.

The fall 2013 production of the musical Ragtime, set in the era when Fullerton College was founded, will be a spectacularly vivid production based on E.L. Doctorow's novel. The large cast production, directed by Gary Krinke, will include student, alumni, and local theatre actors in a production that celebrates and explores that amazing time of change in American politics, immigration, race relations, and culture. The production will be part of a community collaborative project including Ragfest, Railroad Days, the Fullerton Museum Center, and the Muckenthaler Cultural Arts Center.
