Silhouette art—a beautiful memento of a time and place, particularly of children—is no longer practiced the way it once was. Fortunately, the PMA has one of the few remaining practitioners of this unique art form with visiting artist Ruth Monsell. Join us for a special Family Day inspired by Model Citizens: Art and Identity in the United States, 1770-1830, take a family gallery tour of the exhibition, and learn how to make your own silhouette.

This Halloween, return to the graveyard and farmhouse that birthed an entire genre of horror movies. George Romero’s 1968 cult classic, which introduced lurching zombies to viewers while sneaking in a Civil Rights-era message of equality, comes to PMA Films in a new 4k restoration — approved by Romero before he passed away — which means it’s going to look better than ever.

In the spirit of the Halloween season, we'll explore the spooky side of Model Citizens: Art and Identity in the United States, 1770-1830. The Maine Historical Society and historian Libby Bischof join us for a close look at mourning embroidery and memorial portraits to underscore how 18th and 19th century America used painting and needlework to commemorate loved ones after death, and to offer insight into old funeral customs. Watch a demonstration by silhouette artist Ruth Monsell, who will create a ghostly likeness of you.
