Today the Portland Museum of Art, in conjunction with The VIA Agency, launches PMA Go, a web-based, art-collecting game inspired by Pokémon Go. Instead of capturing Wartortles, Kakunas, and Vileplumes, players can amass an art collection of Homers, Renoirs, and Wyeths that generates real world rewards. While many art museums—including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Whitney Museum of American Art—have embraced Pokémon Go as a way to draw visitors into their museums, the PMA is the first art museum in the country to use the premise of Pokémon Go to get its art collection out into the community.
