Today, the 2019 Hallie Ford Fellows Exhibition opens in our Center for Contemporary Art & Culture with work by the fellow including this by PNCA faculty member Sharita Towne.

The Ford Family Foundation awards up to five unrestricted Hallie Ford Fellowships in the Visual Arts per calendar year to Oregon visual artists who have demonstrated a depth of sophisticated practice and potential for significant future accomplishment. These fellowships honor the late Hallie Ford, co-founder of The Ford Family Foundation, who left a legacy based on a lifelong interest in and support of the visual arts.
The exhibition opens June 19 and runs through July 13, 2019.
We sat down with Linda Kliewer, Director of BFA Thesis, to gain a better understanding of what Focus Week is and why it’s such a key part of PNCA’s culture.
