An essay about the education and public programs’ work on last year’s Richard Mosse: The Enclave exhibition was recently published in Interpreting the Art Museum, a collection sharing successful initiatives at leading museums. The essay critically examines the way our visitors and education team worked together in experiencing and interpreting the complex exhibition.
Art brings people together. Art inspires compassion. Now more than ever, we are grateful for the power of art to give us a new perspective on the world. Consider a gift to the Portland Art Museum this Giving Tuesday. Your support allows us to offer free and reduced price access to nearly one third of our visitors, including children—who get in free—active-duty service members, and countless other community partners. Plus, your gift between $250 and $1,000 will be matched by our Board of Trustees, Advancement Committee, and select donors.
