The Connections Campaign will unify the Portland Art Museum campus by connecting the Main Building with the Mark Building. The expansion plan includes the central Mark Rothko Pavilion, added gallery space, increased capacity for education and public programs, enhanced amenities, and improved wayfinding. Groundbreaking is scheduled to take place in 2018, with an expected completion date for the project in late 2020 or early 2021. The Museum has launched the public phase of a $75 million capital and endowment campaign to fund the project, with $26.245 million raised toward the $50 million capital goal and $6.242 million raised toward the $25 million endowment goal.
