  1. Portland’s first ever Moby-Dick Marathon Reading. On Thursday, November 17, the PMA kicks off a four-day, marathon-style reading of Herman Melville’s masterpiece in the Bernard Osher Foundation Auditorium. The book will be read (and perhaps on some cases, performed!) aloud by curators, artists, fishermen and women, writers, students, business leaders, special guests, and more. CLICK HERE for more details.
  2. shrunken-treasures-cover_scott-nashPMA Family Day with Scott Nash. Illustrator, author, and designer Scott Nash visits to share drawing tips and tricks. These workshops encourage kids and their grown-ups to experiment with unique sketching techniques—including some that Scott even uses when imagining and illustrating his books such as Shrunken Treasures. After the art-making, visit the exhibition Of Whales in Paint: Rockwell Kent’s Moby-Dick to explore how various artists and writers across time have represented the iconic story of Moby-Dick.

  3. Now on view Kent, Matisse, and more… In the 1930s the pioneering French artist Henri Matisse began to produce book illustrations and artist books. Over the next two decades, he completed a dozen book projects, working with a variety of printing techniques to explore the relationship between image and text—both visually and thematically. This exhibition, provided by the Bank of America Art in our Communities program, presents four of Matisse’s art books, revealing the artist’s dynamic and multifaceted relationship with literature, creativity, and visual expression.
