The Portland Women in Art Lecture Series (PWALS) was founded in 2010 at Portland Community College with the purpose of bringing feminist artists, curators, and scholars to our city for public lectures, for student art critiques, and for faculty development. The PWALS Committee includes art faculty and students from each campus at Portland Community College and art faculty from Portland State University.

To learn more about PWALS events, see this informational video produced during the visit of artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith in 2013: “Jaune Quick-to-See Smith visits Portland Community College”
