When Dominic Pangborn was approached by the director of the stadium’s operations (familiar with his work) he agreed that this would be a very unique and exciting opportunity to exhibit to the Florida community.

The Park West Gallery artist chose to highlight 10 years of Marlins’ history, designing a piece 10 ft. high x 40 ft. long x 4 ft. deep.

The Wire, Dominic Pangborn, Park West GalleryOn the bright side: artist Dominic Pangborn shares inspiration

Oct. 19, 2011 — Dominic Pangborn was the illegitimate child of an American soldier, born into a divided and bombed-out country in 1952, during the Korean War. On the bright side, he had next to nothing.

“Having nothing and being in an environment of nothing taught me a lot of things,” he said. “One was creativity.”

Pangborn’s unfailing positivity has helped him become a successful artist, represented by the world’s largest art dealer, Park West Gallery. He’s the founder of both a graphic design firm and a fashion label, and finally, an endearing and inspiring public speaker.

He spoke recently at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth as part of the school’s monthly Leadership Series, which invites students and the public to meet with businesspeople and discuss their success stories, philosophies, and current issues and trends…

Park West Gallery CARES Brings Art Enrichment to Chicago Students

Goethe Elementary School welcomes 20 donated works, artist to inspire students, invigorate improvement projects

CHICAGO, IL – While it is said that art imitates life, parents and teachers at Goethe Elementary School in Logan Square hope it also inspires learning. The school is the recipient of 20 works with an approximate retail value of $20,000, donated by Park West Gallery, which was on display when artist Dominic Pangborn visited students on Monday, April 11, 2011.

Dominic Pangborn, Park West Gallery, Geothe ElementaryPark West Gallery artist Dominic Pangborn speaks to students at Goethe Elementary.

Korean-born Pangborn immigrated to the United States as a child, where he developed his mostly self-taught artistic skills. The successful working artist and businessman shared his inspirational story with sixth, seventh and eighth grade students during his visit to the school.   

“We are delighted to welcome Mr. Pangborn, and to receive these works of art from an array of talented artists like him,” says Barbara Kargas, principal, Goethe Elementary School. “We hope that these gifts help nurture our students’ own artistic development, and encourage their academic achievement. We also hope that this donation serves as an invitation to other artists and community members to get involved with their local schools. We all benefit so much when schools and communities work together.” 

The donation and artist talk are the result of a partnership between neighborhood group Friends of Goethe School (FOGS) and Park West CARES, Park West Gallery’s national outreach initiative. Launched in July 2010, the program provides art work donations to community organizations across the United States.

Beyond Monday, Goethe and FOGS hope that the donation spurs other partnerships with creative individuals and groups. FOGS is developing children’s programming for the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival and is working with artists to take part in beautification projects on the campus during its annual block party, both happening in late July. The group also featured local comedians and musicians at its recent fundraiser, which brought in more than $6,000 to help spruce up the school’s playground and outdoor field. 

“We serve clients all across the country, including Chicago, and we are privileged to assist their communities through activities like these,” says Stoney Goldstein, Executive Vice President of Park West Gallery and Chicago resident. “Goethe is a wonderful example of how collaboration between schools, parents and the community breeds student success, and we hope that our contribution helps the school build on that success.”

KPIC CBS 4 News: Douglas High School Art Program Gets Donation

KPIC CBS 4 News, Park West GalleryDouglas High School Art Program Gets Donation
WINSTON, Ore. (KPIC CBS 4 News)—The Douglas High School art department got a big gift Monday morning, when they received a donation of art and books from Park West Gallery out of Southfield, Michigan. It was all thanks to the friendship that was struck between Winston Mayor Rex Stevens and a renowned artist.

Art students and faculty members from the high school were on hand to see the donation, which included 20 works created by Park West artists.

Mayor Stevens says they told the founder and CEO of Park West, Albert Scaglione, about the successful art program at Douglas High School, and of the fiscal challenges facing the school district. Scaglione was impressed that a small, tight budgeted district would still place an emphasis on the arts.

Artist Dominic Pangborn, who represents Park West, was on hand to present it to the school. Pangborn also created a special painting of a tiger to present to the city, and is also creating a new logo for the City of Winston. He says they hope to inspire the students. “We wanted to introduce diversity in terms of style, technique, artists and so on, so you’ve got a really good mixture here,” said Pangborn.

Art teacher Deborah Cusack says the donation will be a big boost to the art program at the school. “This is an art teacher’s dream, usually we have to get the money, put them all on a school bus, get chaperons and haul them to Portland or Ashland. Here, it was brought right to our city of Winston, and it’s just a wonderful, wonderful event,” said Cusack.

Stevens told KPIC News, “The value is how much these young and aspiring artists here in this community can take and benefit from this.” The art has an estimated value at up to $40,000 for the 20 pieces that were donated.

Pangborn presented the 4×4 foot painting of the tiger to the Winston City Council at their meeting Monday night. Thanks to Pangborn, the city will soon be showing off its new logo, that features the cheetah with Douglas Fir trees behind it.
