Join us for a series of talks with artist Arvie Smith as he unpacks and explores work featured in his current exhibition, APEX: Arvie Smith. We’ll meet in the Museum’s side entrance lobby at 6:00 p.m. before heading to the exhibition as a group. This talk is free as part of the Museum’s Free First Thursday Nights. Please plan to arrive early, as there are sometimes long lines to get into the Museum on these nights.


The Portland Art Museum is pleased to offer accommodations to ensure that our programs are accessible and inclusive. All spaces for this program are accessible by wheelchair. Assistive listening devices are also available for lectures. All restrooms have accessible stalls but no power doors. There are single-stall all-gender bathrooms available. Please ask staff for directions.

We will do our best to accommodate your needs when you arrive, however, we need 2-3 weeks advance notice for some specific requests. Please email requests to, or call 503-226-2811.
