Portland’s Poet Laureate Gibson Fay-LeBlanc and young authors from The Telling Room share season-inspired poems, The Waynflete School Chorus sings carols, and The Marshmallow Cart serves up streetside S’mores—it’s all in anticipation of the spectacular lighting of the 100-year-old copper beech tree, a Portland winter tradition that is not to be missed.
Come to the PMA and shop to your heart's content at Sweet Art—a collaborative pop-up shop by the PMA and MECA. Famed illustrator and MECA professor Scott Nash has asked his students to create an entire product line for the PMA store, and it will be available for two weeks only, through February 22!
This summer, the PMA is teaming up with the Portland Public Library’s Brown Bag Lecture Series to offer three afternoons of literature, art, and discussion. Portland Public Library’s Brown Bag Lecture Series features reading and question-and-answer sessions with authors from Maine and afar. On these select Wednesdays, start at the Library and join the author lectures, then head to the PMA for free admission and a tour of works that relate to the themes in the books. Conversation continues with tea and cookies at the PMA Café.
