The Portland2019 Biennial of Contemporary Art is a major survey of Oregon visual artists who have a rigorous approach to art-making in the Pacific Northwest. Portland2019 will focus on the nuanced thematics of site, cultural evolution, and the multifaceted histories of the region as told in eighteen projects. The selected artists were chosen as those whose current studio practices have been influenced by their relationships to community, landscape, and local politics.
ACR has ranked the top animation, design, and gaming programs across the country through annual lists for each state since 2011.
PNCA alums Demian DinéYazhi' ’13 and Lehuauakea ’18 discuss their influences and practices.
Pacific Northwest College of Art extends a huge congratulations to MFA in Visual Studies alumna Elizabeth Malaska, who was recently named one of the 2021 Guggenheim Fellows in Fine Arts.
It is with deep admiration and respect that Pacific Northwest College of Art remembers Dorothy Lemelson who passed away on March 10, 2021.
The museum obtained the painting through a generous gift on behalf of PNCA Board Chair Scott. D. Musch.
