The PRC presented a celebration of early photographic talent in a unique, multi-part exhibition event, centered around the PRC's presentation of the traveling show Early Works, curated by Laura Moya & Laura Valenti of Portland, Oregon and the photographic non-profit Photolucida.

The PRC joined a roster of venerable venues that have shown Early Works, including the University of the Arts, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Rayko Photo Center, and the Newspace Center for Photography.
