The Poster Project

The Portland Art Museum is pleased to provide free, educational posters to educators in Oregon and Washington. Posters feature artwork from the Museum’s permanent collections and represent a wide range of cultures, time periods, and mediums. 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 artwork you can study and enjoy wherever you are. Many works from this new set and from previous years are currently on view in Throughlines: Connections in the Collection through November 1, 2024.
