|Youth Art Month|
March 8, 2014 - April 6, 2014
For the past 20 years, the Portland Museum of Art has partnered with the Maine Art Education Association to present the annual Youth Art Month exhibition each March. This popular show of K-12 student artwork from across the state coincides with National Youth Art Month, which was started in 1961 with the goals of emphasizing the value of art education for all children and encouraging support for quality school art programs. The Youth Art Month exhibition at the PMA is an annual tradition that is eagerly anticipated by visual arts educators, students, and museum audiences. With artwork from Greenville to Skowhegan to York, it is truly a statewide event with over 100 teachers and students participating each year.
Media sponsorship is provided by Bangor Daily News, 94.9 WHOM, and Q97.9.
|George Daniell: Picturing Monhegan Island|
March 1, 2014 - August 3, 2014
This spring, the PMA will showcase an intimate selection of photographs and drawings that George Daniell (United States, 1911-2002) created on Monhegan Island during the summer of 1936, at the advent of his artistic career. In search of adventure and escape from a sweltering August in New York City, Daniell sojourned to Maine, where he spent the month fervently documenting the island that captured his heart and imagination. Drawn from the PMA’s permanent collection, the featured works show the young artist honing his eye for composition and tonal value while depicting Monhegan’s distinctive topography and character with its shingled cottages, hardy people, and wistful afternoons.
Corporate sponsorship is provided by Bath Savings Institution.
