May 24-June 28 PNCA Thesis Show

PNCA, the Pacific Northwest College of Art, has been slowly transforming itself. After decades of a classic curriculum comprising only painting, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design/illustration, the school has added intermedia, accepted performance thesis', merged with a contemporary crafts program, added an MFA program and is now adding a broader 3d design program. Not every BFA program requires every student to spend a year focused in their individual studio, grappling with aesthetics, and preparing them for a lifetime of same, as does PNCA.

The results are presented tonight. BFA students show their work in the studio space in which they have worked for a year, the Stevens Studio. MFA students present in the main building central space, Swigert Commons.

The large public reception will be June 4, First Thursday.

At PNCA Stephens Studio 1432 NW Johnson, Swigert Commons corner 13th and NW Johnson. School business hours. Free
