Many of PCC adjuncts also teach at PSU. Here is some news from PSU shared with us by one of PCC’s instructors, Davida Jordan. It is an email from the PSU Adjunct Union President Kelly Cowan about a creative action at PSU:
When you are back on campus for the Fall check out the exhibition organized by adjuncts in PSU’s School of Art+Design and sponsored by PSUFA.
An exhibition of artwork by all 75+ adjuncts in PSU’s School of Art + Design
September 2nd – 30th, 2015
Closing reception: September 30th, 5-8pm
Smith Memorial Student Union
Portland State University

[Con]temporary Faculty visualizes the numerous and dynamic adjunct faculty members who help to keep PSU’s School of Art & Design running. Many of us don’t know each other, and our creative and scholarly pursuits are diverse, but we walk the same paths to the copy machine, faculty mailboxes, and office printer on a frequent basis. Considering this, we invited our fellow adjuncts to utilize our common medium and contribute an 11 x 17in. black-and-white, Xerox copy, print, or paper construction for the show.
Beyond showcasing the work of the talented artists, art hisorians, and graphic designers who work in the school, the exhibition creates a visual structure through which we can begin to recognize all 75+ of our colleagues (even those who weren’t able to contribute), and open discussions about our varied experiences as members of a growing workforce of part-time professors.
