About the Portland Art Museum
Founded in 1892, the Portland Art Museum is the oldest art museum on the West Coast and the seventh oldest in the United States. Over time it has developed a collection of more than 52,000 works of art ranging from ancient to contemporary, displayed in 112,000 square feet of galleries. The Museum devotes 90 percent of its galleries to its permanent collection. Its mission is to engage the public with art and film of enduring quality, to facilitate dialogue with diverse audiences, and to collect, preserve, and educate for the enrichment of present and future generations.

About Portland State University’s Art and Social Practice MFA Program
Portland State University’s Art and Social Practice MFA is composed of a unique combination of individual research, group work, and experiential learning. The program’s blend of critical and professional practice, collaborative social engagement, and transdisciplinary exploration produces an immersive educational environment. Based in Portland, Oregon, the program’s Flexible Residency model allows for travel and even the ability for students to reside outside of Portland during their course of study. The 90-credit, three-year course encourages students to shape the direction of their own education, and to continually redefine and develop the program as a whole. Students connect their art practice to research in the field through electives and community partnerships, and their work and research is presented publicly in the form of final lectures, graduate projects, and contributions to an ongoing publication series.
