PNCA presents its first juried alumni exhibition in the Swigert Commons. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity for PNCA and the Portland cultural community to see the scope of contemporary art, craft, and design by alumni from PNCA’s Bachelor of Fine Arts and Masters of Fine Arts programs. It offers the viewer the opportunity to become an institutional archaeologist, to dig down through the accumulated strata of object, image, and idea to get at the cultural DNA of the College. For alumni, it is an appropriate homecoming or completion of a circle. Major exhibition support has been provided by The Ford Family Foundation.
