Pam Barby is our Chairperson of the graphic design department in our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program. Pam developed a love for art and design at a young age and was heavily influenced by her grandfather, who was a painter.  Her expanded passion for design began during her college years. After graduating college, she was an in-house designer within the beauty industry, and then moved on to a small design studio creating a variety of print work. She began her freelance career in 2001. A few years later she was extended an invitation to teach at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) in 2005 and has been an invaluable source of professional guidance and leader of all things in graphic design since her arrival.

"Much like Cynthia, I have a deep connection to the arts and I have friends and family that push me to do better every single day. I want to thank the Price family for being so generous." said PCA&D Illustration student Antoinette "Annie" Troller, of Effort, PA, the recipient of the Cynthia E Price Memorial Scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year.

 J. Richard "Rick" Price and his two sons Jacob and Jordan, along with their families, created the Scholarship last year to remember Cynthia, their wife and mother, an artist and craftswoman who worked, lived, and loved in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
