Sheila Hamilton To Deliver 2016 Edelman Lecture at Pacific Northwest College of Art
Lecture topic: Destigmatizing Mental Illness

Portland, OR—April 12, 2016—Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) welcomes Sheila Hamilton to deliver the 2016 Edelman Lecture on May 10, 2016 at 5:30pm. Hamilton is a five-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and the author of All the Things We Never Knew, her memoir about being blindsided by her husband’s bipolar disorder and suicide. She will speak about her personal experience with mental illness and advocate for a more holistic approach to mental health.

Following her talk, Sheila will be joined in conversation with musician and activist Logan Lynn and Jennifer Pepin, whose J. Pepin Art Gallery works to reframe the perception of mental illness. Benedict Carey, science reporter for The New York Times, will moderate the discussion, which concludes with an audience Q & A.

About the Edelman Lecture
When the late Portland architect and photographer, Alfred Edelman, taught three-dimensional design at PNCA, he challenged his students to consider the principles of engineering, kinetics, physics and other subjects seemingly dissimilar to art. In doing so he brought the outside world into his classroom. Founded by Carol Edelman, the Alfred Edelman Lecture was created to enhance the student’s understanding of the visual world by presenting timeless and/or unique ways to examine and manipulate three-dimensional space and to be a catalyst for lively discussions in the classroom at PNCA.

About Pacific Northwest College of Art
As Oregon’s premiere college of art and design since 1909, PNCA has helped shape the region’s visual arts landscape for more than a century. Today PNCA is a dynamic platform for 21st century art and design education at its new campus in the heart of downtown Portland. PNCA offers four BFA programs with 10 concentrations, six graduate programs within the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies, and a Post-Baccalaureate program. pnca.edu
