You’re invited… for an all-day Open House with free admission for everyone to the Portland Museum of Art. Gallery talks with community members, and all-ages games and art-making activities. Explore an entirely new PMA and discover the strength and new visual presentation of the museum’s collection, which features 20% more art on view—often in new and surprising places—themed galleries, and interactive, multimedia kiosks.

These events also mark the public openings of the museum’s spring exhibitions: The Thrill of the Chase: The Wagstaff Collection of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Mistress and the Muse: Selections from the Isabelle and Scott Black Collection, and Artist’s Choice: Photographs from the Judy Glickman Lauder Collection.

Activities throughout the day include:
Community Highlights Catalog – Reimagine your favorite work of art in the PMA. Using a variety of drawing and collage materials, create your own version of your favorite work in the collection and leave it behind to be added into our community-created highlights catalog.
Community Voices – We are inviting community members to share personal responses to their favorite work in the collection. Hear unique 15-minute perspectives on the collection.
