PDX Contemporary Art in partnership with the Oregon College of Art and Craft welcomes you to Be a FAN and to Buy a FAN! Past OCAC Board member and advocate, Jane Beebe, is donating a showcase and fundraiser for the College through the critically acclaimed “PDX Window Project”. Past Artists-in-Residence, current faculty and artist staff are creating works of art on white paper fans to be installed in the window of PDX Contemporary Art during the month of November. Respected artist and 2004 Oregon College of Art and Craft Artist-in-Residence, Storm Tharp, is honorary chair of this event.

All proceeds will support OCAC’s Capital and Endowment Campaign.
To meet growing enrollment and demand, the College is renovating existing studios and expanding its facility space. The Michigan based Kresge Foundation believes in the College and has challenged OCAC to finish the campaign by March 31, 2010.
To keep Kresge’s $900,000 in Oregon, to pay Oregon workers and buy Oregon products, please become a fan of OCAC and buy a fan!
