Portland, OR: Oregon College of Art and Craft

Visit: We visited with Denise Mullen, College President and former Corcoran colleague.

We were not able to visit the library, but did talk with the librarian. They have not offered design programs for very long, so there is not a lot of history, but OCAC has begun a cooperative Master's program in Applied Design and Crafts.

Discoveries: Denise's staff were a wealth of information on the Portland area, and led us to many great design discoveries. Even better - to many great food discoveries. We had better food in Portland than any city we visited on the whole road trip. Small restaurants and great atmosphere.
