Don’t miss Shine a Light 2013, the Museum’s annual collaboration with Portland State University’s Art and Social Practice program. Taking place Friday, May 17, Shine a Light asks visitors to reconsider what is possible in a museum. A mix of artist-driven installations, performances, and interventions will take place throughout the Museum campus, offering an exciting opportunity to rethink your relationship to art. This is a popular event at the Museum, so advance ticket purchase is recommended.
Thanks to all those who attended the Museum’s first ever New for the Wall event, the Museum will be adding three new works to the permanent collection: Itō Jakuchū’s Carp Ascending a Waterfall, Albrecht Dürer’s Madonna Crowned by Two Angels, and Irving Penn’s Marcel Duchamp. The Japanese painting Carp Ascending a Waterfall was purchased outright and given as a gift to the Museum by Mia Hervin Moore in honor of her mother Maria Hervin, who was a member of the Asian Art Council; the other two works will be purchased with the proceeds from the event.
The Portland Art Museum recently received a $171,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize its collection of Northwest art. The Museum has more than 7,000 works by artists living and working in the region. This grant will allow the Museum to share images and information about this important collection throughout the region and around the world.
