2014 Gala Resounding Success

PNCA’s 2014 Gala was a resounding success: a beautiful evening, a full house, and plenty of surprises. A greater number of supporters than ever before, including Mayor Hales, Congressman Blumenauer, and Commissioner Nick Fish, attended the sold-out Gala at Vigor Industrial on Swan Island. A highlight of the evening was a very special performance by k.d. lang in a stunning environment created by award-winning designer and alumnus, Michael Curry ‘81. In addition to funds raised for PNCA’s Annual Fund, numerous announcements were made throughout the evening of major gifts to the College’s Capital Campaign, CREATIVITY WORKS HERE, in support of our campus expansion to the North Park Blocks. One of the most dramatic gifts was that of Mark Edlen of $1 million to name the main corridor of the building after his wife and PNCA’s Board Chair, The Ann Payne Edlen Creative Corridor. PNCA looks forward to next year’s Gala which will be held at the College’s new home in the 511 Building, the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design.
