PORTLAND, OR – February 29, 2012 – Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) is pleased welcome Mark Takiguchi as the College’s new Academic Dean. Takiguchi comes to PNCA from California College of the Arts (CCA) where he was Associate Director of Fine Arts and prior to that, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies. As PNCA continues to grow both in size and influence, with five new graduate programs in as many years, an increasingly international engagement, and a campus expansion slated to begin later this year, Takiguchi’s deep experience in building programs is key. This year alone, the College launches the MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research and the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies as part of the Ford Institute for Visual Education (FIVE). The PNCA community has doubled in size since 2004, and growth projections show another 50% increase in the student body in the next two years. This is one reason why the College finds itself finalizing schematic designs for the linchpin of its campus expansion project, the renovation of the historic 511 building on Portland’s North Park Blocks this spring.
