Art and Authors

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.
