The Arlene Schnitzer Visual Arts Prize was created in 2013 with a gift from the Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation to help raise awareness of the quality of art education at Portland State University. Fifty-five students competed for this year’s prizes. Winners were selected by a jury that included PSU faculty members Pat Boas, Erik Geschke, and Lis Charman, and community representatives Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson (Portland Art Museum); Sarah Meigs, (founder of the Lumber Room); Duane King (Huge/KingCoyle); and Theo Downes-Le Guin (Upfor Gallery).
