A Special Night For Portland & Maine

A Special Night For Portland & Maine

Last night, over 2,700 people came to the PMA to explore an entirely new and reimagined museum, and many, many more braved the icy February temperatures to celebrate with us and enjoy our Lights Across Congress performances. 

It was truly a magical moment for all of us at the museum—to see so many people from Portland and our surrounding communities come together and rally around the arts, and we thank you.

The arts are a record of our greatest accomplishments, and moments like last night speak to the power we have when we come together and unite in our shared humanity. From the contemporary works of Tim Rollins & K.O.S. and William Pope.L to European impressionists Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet, and from sculptors Louise Nevelson and Gaston Lachaise to American modernists Marsden Hartley and Marguerite Thompson, art transcends gender, race, ethnicity, and culture, sexuality, class, religion, and rule. Art is what connects us to the world and to each other, and last night was a powerful example of our community's shared connection, compassion, and love.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for making the PMA your museum.
