A Campus on the North Park Blocks

Creativity Works Here: A Transformational Vision

PNCA is embarking on our boldest venture yet: a $15 million campaign to transform not just a college, but a city, by establishing the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design as an anchor for the College’s vision of a new campus home on Portland’s North Park Blocks, thanks to a lead gift from the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation of $5 million to name the historic former post office at 511 NW Broadway. 

PNCA’s Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design

PNCA’s new home will become a bustling new hub for creativity and entrepreneurship, reflecting the transformational power of art and design. The 134,000 square foot building will enable the College to shed expensive leased spaces and to grow the student body from 600 to 1,000 by 2018. PNCA’s Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design will serve as the gateway to the transformation of the North Park Blocks. The new Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design joins PNCA’s partner, the Museum of Contemporary Craft and ArtHouse, a spectacular new residence hall on the North Park Blocks
