ABOUT THE EVENING WITH AN ARTIST SERIES
Throughout Portland, you can see the influence of PNCA’s student, alumni, and faculty artists and designers on the cultural landscape of the city. You can encounter their work in galleries and artist-run spaces, in exhibitions and permanent collections, and as public art on streets and along transit corridors.
In this new event series, PNCA presents intimate conversations with emerging and established artists who share a deep connection with PNCA. We hope you will join us for an Evening With An Artist this spring.
