Alumni Reunion November 10
October 25, 2018
Calling all PNCA and Museum Art School alumni!
We hope you’ll join us for your PNCA Reunion Saturday, November 10 from 5-10pm for an evening of community, conversation, memories, and celebration. Maybe it’s been one year since you walked across the stage at graduation. Maybe it’s been 50.
Get ready for another PNCA party, more art walks, and classes (minus the homework) at this year’s Alumni Reunion. You can expect drinks, dinner, performances, and more to honor and celebrate YOU, our Alumni family. And it's free for 2018 graduates!
