It is with heartfelt respect and admiration that Pacific Northwest College of Art remembers Arlene Schnitzer, who died on April 4, 2020 at the age of 91. A dynamic and powerful, yet quiet and modest voice in Portland’s cultural ethos, her philanthropic legacy has influenced generations of cultural and civic leaders and transformed the artistic landscape of Portland.
