Art councils

The Portland Art Museum Art councils offer unique opportunities to engage with the Museum’s different curatorial focuses, and support our mission to inspire and educate through art. By joining a council, you’ll become part of a community committed to promoting the arts in Portland and beyond. 

Councils are led by their respective curator and powered by dedicated council volunteers and council boards. Each council hosts events, tours, and programs tailored to their members’ interest. As a council member, you’ll have access to exclusive opportunities to connect with artists, curators, and other like-minded individuals who share a passion for the arts. 

Annual dues

Council dues are based on a sliding scale of $150, $300, and $500 depending on your individual ability to give. Your council dues go directly towards funding council activities such as events, programs, and art acquisitions. 

Please note that council dues are in addition to your Museum membership dues. Not yet a member? Join today!

Council Membership is also included as part of the Museum’s Patron Society membership at the Guarantor level and above. Learn more about supporting the Portland Art Museum as a member of our Patron Society.
