Business of the Year: ARTS
October 03, 2018
We're delighted to report that Pacific Northwest College of Art has been selected as the Business of the Year: Arts for the 2018 Pearl District Business Awards.
Yes, we are actually a non-profit institution of higher education, but the PDBA may not have a category for that, so we'll accept the award as-is. We're lucky to be a part of the Pearl District neighborhood in the heart of Portland that is home to most of the city's art galleries and top design studios. We feel right at home. And we appreciate the PDBA's recognition of PNCA and the vibrance we bring the neighborhood, from our 600+ students and their work in their studios, the galleries, parks, and streets, to the hundreds of free cultural programs we offer the community each year.
A Force of Nature is the apt title of the Eugene Weekly's review of alumna Lucinda Parker's retrospective exhibition, Force Fields, at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem.
Our Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing, BFA in Creative Writing, and MA in Critical Studies collaborate to present a number of events on campus and off as Patron Sponsors of AWP including a rare look at the Burning Deck archive.
Nandini Ranganathan, Executive Director of PNCA's Make+Think+Code lab is one of the featured leaders speaking at TedX Portland on April 27.
Printmaking professor Yoshihiro Kitai is among the artists in residence at Crow's Shadow this year. The institute is profiled in the NY Times.
