THIS EVENT IS OVER
PNCA is pleased to announce Mary Mattingly ’02 as this year’s Homecoming Speaker. Through her practice, Mary Mattingly explores how humans interact with the environment, machines, and corporate and political entities. Her work reflects the themes of home, travel, and cartography.
Also at this event, PNCA President Tom Manley will present the Doctor of Arts Honoris Causa degree to alumna Arlene Schnitzer, who will also accept a Doctor of Arts Honoris Causa degree on behalf of her late husband, Harold Schnitzer. A leading Portland cultural philanthropist, Schnitzer was inspired to open her important Fountain Gallery by her instructors at PNCA, then the Museum Art School. This was her entrée into the heart of Portland’s cultural life which she and her late husband have continued to help shape in the decades since. Recently the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation made the lead gift of $5 million for PNCA’s capital campaign for campus expansion to Portland’s North Park Blocks. PNCA’s new home at 511 NW Broadway will be the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design when it opens in the 2014 academic year.
