MFA in Applied Craft and Design Program Welcomes Po Shun Leong
January 25, 2010
The MFA in Applied Craft and Design program welcomes Po Shun Leong in a free public lecture, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, January 28 at the MFA in Applied Craft and Design Studios @ The Bison Building, 421 N.E. 10th Ave. and Glisan Street.
Leong is an artist, former architect, sculptor, and furniture maker. His highly intricate and inspiring one-of-a-kind wood boxes have been enthusiastically acquired and are in numerous museum collections. Often inspired by ancient or legendary civilizations, Leong’s work displays a flamboyant sense of shape, surprise and presentation.
The MFA in Applied Craft and Design is a joint degree program offered by PNCA and Oregon College of Art and Craft. The lecture is part of the College’s Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture series.
