On Friday evening, Nick was honored to represent the city at an important milestone: the grand opening of the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s new home, the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art & Design.
Nick joined PNCA President Tom Manley, Arlene and Jordan Schnitzer, Governor Kate Brown, Senator Ron Wyden, Congressmen Earl Blumenauer and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici, former and current PDC staff and Board members, architect Brad Cloepfil, and many others to celebrate the grand opening.
PNCA’s new home at 511 NW Broadway was almost a decade in the making. The historic building opened in 1919 as a Post Office, and later served as Federal offices before becoming vacant in 2005. That’s when Tom Manley’s vision for a new PNCA took shape.
Congratulations to all the public and private partners for securing PNCA’s foundation for the next 100 years.
