The 20th Annual Art Beat

This year celebrates our 20th anniversary, and we are proud to present a great assortment of performances. From featured artist Mylan Rakich (metal sculptor) to flamenco dance with Solo Flamenco, Arab-American playwright Yussef El Guindi to print-maker Kurt Kemp, there will be events to inspire and entertain all.

Over the last two decades, PCC has acquired twenty pieces of art through Art Beat. Now, in 2007, we are proud to display all of these works in a revolving show, currently at Sylvania Campus and moving to Cascade Campus for the May 7th opening reception of Art Beat.
