HCA Welcomes New Board Member



Announcing New Board Member, Ben Rosenberg!

The Hoffman Board of Directors are happy to announce the election of Ben Rosenberg! We are delighted to have Ben on the Board after his many years as a Hoffman artist and instructor. Ben’s knowledge and expertise in the arts, classes and programming, and community partnerships are a wonderful asset for Hoffman Center for the Arts. We are grateful for his support over the years and excited for this new chapter together.

Ben is Adjunct Professor for Clark College in Vancouver, Washington, teaches Printmaking at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, and substitute teaches in the Neah-Kah-Nie School District.

Ben received a BFA in Printmaking from Temple University and an MFA in Studio Arts from Portland State University. He’s taught an extensive range of art making in all kinds of places to diverse populations for just about as long as he’s been making art. His past work as an illustrator are all monotypes hand colored with watercolors and gouache, and have been used by clients such as The Portland Tribune, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Oregonian, Johns Hopkins University, Willamette Week, Hewlett-Packard, and many others.

Ben has curated for and served on many art committees to jury shows including RACC in Portland, Disjecta Auction Committee (now Oregon Contemporary), Art in the Pearl, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, and Portland State University.
