Congratulations to the Class of 2013
May 27, 2013
Congratulations to the talented graduates of the class of 2013 from the faculty, staff, and administration of PNCA.
This year, PNCA graduated 154 talented men and women in nine undergraduate programs and four graduate programs. These dedicated artists are painters, innovators, sculptors, filmmakers, illustrators, animators, writers, designers, and question-askers. They are curious. They think creatively. They hold up a lens to the world and show us what works, what’s broken, and how we can make it better.
Since PNCA was founded in 1909, PNCA has graduated 3379 artist and creative thinkers. These graduates have left their mark on the world in ways both large and small. And now the Class of 2013 joins this alumni family.
Have a safe, happy, and productive summer.

Schnitzer family's $2M gift to support Willamette University/Pacific Northwest College of Art merger
Willamette will launch a search soon to retain a nationally recognized educator and leader in art and design to serve as PNCA’s new dean. This $2 million gift from the late Arlene Schnitzer will create the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer PNCA Dean’s Initiative Fund, and provide the new PNCA Dean with resources to test new initiatives, facilitate collaboration between the PNCA and Willamette faculties, and more.
