Revisit Fall 2012's Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Each year, Pacific Northwest College of Art brings notable artists and thinkers to Portland for thought-provoking conversations around issues in contemporary art and design. This year’s 2012-2013 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series is no exception. We welcome you to join us for the lecture, but if you can’t make it, be sure to check back here regularly as we’ll be posting interviews, podcasts, slideshows, and video from our visiting artists.

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.
