This social mixer, in collaboration with AIGA Maine and featuring a beer tasting by Allagash Brewing Company, will give you an opportunity to rub elbows with Maine’s creative community. Listen to bluegrass, connect with new people, and explore the PMA galleries.
BLUEGRASS IN THE GARDEN
Gathered around one microphone, Portland quartet Jerks of Grass perform a blend of traditional bluegrass and progressive roots music. These veterans of the New England bluegrass scene have more than 1,200 performances to their name and play an energetic set that music fans of all ages will love.
DESIGN FOR GOOD: THE UN-COLORING BOOK
Get an exclusive look at AIGA Maine’s first Design for Good initiative—an un-coloring book titled “Imaginative ME.” Created by Maine artists, this un-coloring book encourages children of all ages to draw from their own imaginations, and will be gifted to patients at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, wish children at Make-A-Wish Maine, and to other children facing health and life crisis in centers across the state. Gather some colorful pencils and color outside the lines for a great cause.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
15-Minute Small Talk
5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
McLellan House Galleries
Join Curatorial Fellow Diana Greenwold to get the inside scoop on the new installation in the historic McLellan House. Look at domestic objects that are ingeniously fashioned in one medium to replicate or evoke the qualities of another, and learn about the Industrial Revolution’s transformative impact on the design and production of household goods from the 18th and 19th century.
#ThirdThursPMA is a monthly party in which the PMA stays open until 9 p.m. with live music, special programming, and collaborations with organizations throughout the community. It's the kind of event where you can stop in for a quick drink before an evening on the town, or stay for hours and take in music, discussion, art, and more. It happens on the third Thursday of every month, is open to the public, and included in your museum admission—it's always free for members.
Stay up late with the us as we keep our galleries open, giving #ThirdThursPMA party-goers an after hours viewing experience of our extensive collection and special exhibitions. Start your weekend early with #ThirdThursPMA.
