Free First Thursday

Apr 4, 2024
10:00 am - 8:00 pm
1219 SW Park Ave, Portland, OR
General accessibility


Come celebrate the opening of Future Now: Virtual Sneakers to Cutting-Edge Kicks with Free First Thursday, offering free Portland Art Museum admission for the community all day.

5 – 7:.30 p.m. – DJ Am Bush and guest DJs.

Thanks to generous support provided by the Art Bridges Foundation’s Access for All Program, Museum admission is free on the first Thursday of every month from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and programs at the newly opened PAM CUT Tomorrow Theater in Southeast Portland are also free. 

Free First Thursdays at the Museum and PAM CUT’s Tomorrow Theater aligns with the revitalization of the long-standing Portland art galleries’ tradition of opening their doors for openings, receptions, and events on the first Thursday of each month. In recent months art and culture organizations have joined to bring back this popular activity, including the Pacific Northwest College of Art and the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education in the North Park Blocks.


Free First Thursday tickets can be reserved online one week in advance and are also available at the door. Tickets to Free First Thursday programs at the Tomorrow Theater are available online.

Generous support provided by Art Bridges Foundation’s Access for All program.
