The National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) was created in 1978, solely for the organization and planning of National Portfolio Days. The Association consists of representatives from regionally accredited US colleges and universities that are accredited institutional members of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and Canadian colleges and universities that are members of Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) or that hold NASAD Substantial Equivalency status. NPDA is the only organization of its kind and the membership represent the highest standard of visual arts education available in the United States and Canada.
All Portfolio Day events are free, open to the public and do not require pre-registration.
Now, this is a great opportunity to talk to people and get some feedback outside of every known circle you have. It is also in New York City and I think you could go there and test out your portfolio, see how it flies.
