Members Evening Reception for Your Museum, Reimagined

Your Museum, Reimagined: Members Evening Reception

This historic occasion is on par with the opening of the Charles Shipman Payson Building in 1980, the reopening of the restored McLellan House and LD.M. Sweat Memorial Galleries in 2002, and the opening to the public of the Winslow Homer Studio in 2012—all dramatic steps forward for the PMA and for art in Maine, and unforgettable events for everyone who attended. 

The new PMA starts now, and we want our members to experience it before anyone else.
