Trung Bao: One of the World’s Premier New-School Beatboxers
July 23, 2019
One of our own makes the Willamette Week's Best of 2019! Senior Trung Bao is named Best Competitive Beatboxer. A talented graphic design student, Bao is also a world-class new-school beatboxer, the first Vietnamese citizen to win a wild card to an international beatbox championship. He placed second in the American Beatbox Championships.
And he was the first Vietnamese citizen to win a wild card to an international beatbox championship.
The WW reports, "[W]hat really brought Bao international recognition were the many videos of his battles, recorded and published by the beatbox-specific streaming platform Swissbeatbox. In the past year, Bao began working with the company to create competitions in his home country of Vietnam."
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.
In recognition of Black History Month, PNCA recognizes Adrian Piper and her critically acclaimed video installation titled Cornered (1998), where viewers are encouraged to acknowledge miscegenation in America and challenge themselves to honestly address Black ancestry.
PNCA alumni create a replicable model that other museums and institutions can utilize in response to calls for systemic change.
