About the Arlene Schnitzer Visual Arts Prize:
The Arlene Schnitzer Visual Arts Prizes were created in 2013 with a gift from the Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation to help raise awareness of the quality of art education at PSU and to honor Arlene Schnitzer, a devoted and inspired leader of art and culture in Portland.
Arlene has been a dynamic advocate at the center of the Portland arts community since the 1960s. She opened one of Portland’s first art galleries and has directly supported and influenced the lives of many regional artists. PSU’s School of Art + Design is grateful to the Harold & Arlene CARE Foundation for establishing this distinctive award that recognizes talented art students and advances the quality, profile, and reputation of the School, the College of the Arts and the University.
