Announcing the Fall 2012 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series
September 16, 2012
Pacific Northwest College of Art announces the Fall 2012 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series, bringing notable artists and thinkers to Portland for thought-provoking conversations around issues in contemporary art and design. Located in Portland, Pacific Northwest College of Art’s growing roster of graduate programs bring together critical thinking and intense studio work in a rigorous setting where studio visits by national and international critics and artists provide students with one-on-one feedback.
Most lectures take place in the Swigert Commons at 6:30pm in PNCA’s Main Building (1241 NW Johnson Street) in Portland’s Pearl District (unless noted otherwise) and are always free and open to the public.
