Nov. 30 marked the last evening Portland State’s Neuberger Hall would host a gallery as it stands today.
After a donation from Fariborz Maseeh, Ph.D through the Massiah Foundation, renovations will begin winter term.
Project organizers expect the renovation o be completed within two years. First year students in the CORE Program, a new academic program that combines surface, time and space design classes with digital tools and ideation, got a chance to display their works along the walls of the historic building before renovations begin.
The display from a sampling of PSU’s rising talent served as a proper sendoff for the soon-to-be renovated building. The showcase included performance art pieces, photography with experimental elements, artwork showing students’ personalized interpretations of human emotion and a two-room space where visitors could decorate the walls however they chose.
