2007.60.224Love cats? So do we! The Portland Art Museum is blessed with a host of prints and drawings of these furry creatures who delight us with their playful antics, expressive poses, and quiet companionship. Come see how artists from the nineteenth century to today have depicted Felis catus, from cozy domestic scenes to the crazy cat lady. Curator Mary Weaver Chapin will be on hand to guide you through this purrfectly entertaining exhibition devoted to felines.

This pop-up display will be on view for one night only and include a sampling of works from the Museum’s extensive Graphic Arts collection.

Program is free with admission.


Here’s what else Fridays at the Museum have in store:

  • Beer and pizza in the pop-up pub.

  • Twitter and Instagram happenings like photo booths and Twitter takeovers.
  • Art Guides—friendly folks ready to answer questions and help you make the most of your visit.
  • Occasional special events like 3-hour exhibitions.
