“nurturing artistic creativity in everyone”
The center strives to encourage and nurture artistic creativity, by providing a supportive and inspiring environment for artists and by offering art exhibitions, events and educational programs that raise public awareness and appreciation for the arts. The building which currently houses artists of the Pendleton Art Center was erected in 1909 for the Krohn-Fecheimer Shoe Company, the company that later became U.S. Shoe. It was purchased in the mid-1900's by Shillito's Department Store to serve as a main warehouse facility. In September 1991, The Verdin Company, the world's oldest and largest bell and clock manufacturer, opened the building close to their world headquarters to promote and showcase local artisans. With eight floors of studios featuring original pine floors , eight foot arched windows and over 200 artists, PAC is the world's largest collection of artists under one roof.
