Event Details

May 6 - May 10
All campuses and Southeast Campus. 
All events are free and open to everyone.

Featured Artist: Horatio Law

Horatio Hung-Yan Law creates collaborative work with diverse communities, connecting with regular folks and exploring current human conditions.  PCC has been honored by Horatio Law’s involvement in our community as he crafted this year’s featured art.

From photographs he took of PCC students, Law created three digital renderings, using specific, uniquely-shaded small icons that meld together to reflect both the person and his or her personality. The works are named after the students portrayed, Aja, Jeremy and Jessie.

Horatio Law presents these creations to Portland Community College at the Southeast Campus’s Art Beat Reception on Tuesday, May 7. Law will also discuss his inspirations and passions-specifically how we can enrich our cultural fabric by weaving art into everyday life.

If you cannot make it to Southeast Campus’s event, you can attend Law’s presentations and discussions at Cascade and Sylvania campuses (see campus schedules). For more information on Horatio Law, please go to his website: HoratioLaw.com
