PMA360 presents: Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Night

Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Night
Friday, March 17
5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

PMA360 is a monthly series as part of select Free Fridays. It introduces innovative ways to engage with the museum, through special guests, exclusive gallery experiences, and more! It's a new way to PMA.

PMA 360 presents: Photography Night

During Free Friday, explore the exhibitions The Thrill of the Chase: The Wagstaff Collection of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum and Artist's Choice: Photographs from the Judy Glickman Lauder Collection. Enjoy "Community Voices: Photographers on Photography," and hear local photographers discuss our photography exhibitions and reflect on their own work. Make a photo collage with vintage and contemporary images.

Open House

Join us for an all-day Open House with free admission for everyone, gallery talks with community members, and all-ages games and art-making activities. Explore an entirely new PMA and discover the strength and new visual presentation of the museum’s collection, which features 20% more art on view—often in new and surprising places—themed galleries, and interactive, multimedia kiosks.

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.
