How does Young Patrons support the Museum?
Throughout the year YP members raise money for the Museum with funding from dues, individuals gifts, and pledges. Fundraising is used to support exhibitions, educational programs, and art acquisitions. Collectively, Young Patrons have the potential to make a significant impact on the Museum and its future. Recently, Young Patrons sponsored a Japanese print for the Museum’s exhibition of The Artist’s Touch / The Craftsman’s Hand: Three Centuries of Japanese Prints from the Portland Art Museum.
What kinds of events does Young Patrons hold?
YP events are held throughout the year, and include their annual summer pARTy, winter holiday party, museum-wide scavenger hunt, painting parties, wine tastings, private docent or curator-led gallery tours, film screenings with the Northwest Film Center, and plenty of happy hours and social gatherings.
