Patron Society events are a wonderful way for Patrons to learn, share, socialize, and be inspired by a world of art. Members of the Patron Society are offered a host of exclusive opportunities throughout the year, including invitations to major exhibition openings, customized travel opportunities, behind-the-scenes private art viewings in the homes of local collectors, and much more.

For more information, contact Brianna Hobbs at 503-276-4312 or brianna.hobbs@pam.org.
