This summer, take the time to make art with your kids—it’s something you’ll remember together, and the PMA can help. On this Family Day, come together and make a textile sculpture using a myriad of materials inspired by colors, textures, and forms in Hans Hofmann: Works on Paper. Visiting textile and installation artist Pamela Moulton will offer guidance and help you gain inspiration from the exhibition. Work collaboratively or alone, for as little or long as you like. Join us for a family gallery tour exploring bright colors and bold sculptures from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

We’ve invited naturalists from Maine Audubon to join us outside in our brand-new David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park for this special summer Family Day. Break out the sunscreen and relax outdoors, in nature and among our sculpture.

This August, we’re welcoming the professional dancers of the Portland Ballet Company to share performances inspired by A New American Sculpture, 1914-1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach. You can try your hand at sketching the poses of the dancers and the sculptures. It’s an exciting and interactive way to engage with the exhibition that the tiny dancers in your life will love.
