Thank you, Portlanders, for supporting the Arts Tax! The Museum is proud to partner with Portland Public Schools to host the annual HeART of Portland: A Portland Public Schools K-12 Arts Showcase. The showcase includes an exhibition of 80 works by PPS visual arts students and an opening reception with student performances. In addition, hundreds of PPS students will participate in collaborative art projects exploring themes of natural disaster, resilience, and community in response to Volcano! Mount St. Helens in Art. Please join us in celebrating arts education in Portland and the students and teachers who are at the center of this work.

No registration required. The showcase is free and open to the public.
