PMA360: A New Movement

Two of Portland’s finest cultural institutions come together in surprising ways when the Portland Ballet Company and the PMA collaborate on this one-night-only event full of life, art, and movement. The artists in A New American Sculpture, 1914-1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach were inspired by the vibrancy of the popular dance and performance culture in America, and used dancers, acrobats, and circus performers as their models.
