Barbara A. Sestak, Dean of PSU's School of Fine and Performing Arts, says about the ongoing colloboration between the University of Ulsan and PSU:

The strong and enduring relationship within the visual arts between the University of Ulsan and Portland State University has grown and and evolved over the years.  The exchange of ideas is a core component of this relationship, and the faculty/student exhibition continues to be one of its strong manifestations.  The expansion of the exhibition across PSU's campus into two different galleries also offers more oportunities for members of the Portland community to explore the work.
