A vision of the future of Portland’s original U.S. Post office at 511 NW Broadway is written in its magnificent bones: the numerous skylights, expansive windows, lofty ceilings, and open spaces. As President Tom Manley notes, “It’s as if the building always aspired to be a college of art and design.”
During the 2014–15 academic year, this historic building—identified as the geographic center of Portland by a U.S. Geological Survey marker—will re-emerge as PNCA’s Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design, a new hub for creativity and entrepreneurship.
