The Poster Project
With generous support from the PGE Foundation, the Portland Art Museum has created a set of posters featuring works across the permanent collections. Posters are available free of charge to educators in Oregon and Washington. Hang them in classrooms, hallways, and libraries or take them out for specific activities and lessons. Our goal is to provide educators and students with artworks you can study and enjoy wherever you are.
New in Fall 2017: Spanish-language PDFs are available for all eight new posters plus previous posters of works by Diego Rivera and the Kuna artist. Developed with the support and collaboration of AB Cultural Drivers, LLC.
Schedule a free school tour and experience the art in person.
