American Sculpture at a Crossroads, 1914-1945

Bernard Osher Foundation Auditorium
 
 

Public/Sculpture: Jonathan Borofsky's Human Structures in Context

Jonathan Borofsky’s sculpture Human Structures (24 Figures Connected), newly unveiled in the David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park, proudly asserts the importance of social connections—or, in the artist’s words, “humanity connecting together to build itself.” Independent curator and always-engaging speaker Patterson Sims will discuss the role of public sculpture in contemporary society—how it brings us together and apart.

In Conversation with Collector Scott Black

Financial Manager Scott Black grew from a Deering High School graduate to owner of one of the most renowned private collections of European modernism in the world. What drives his passion for art? What does a collector see when he or she looks at a work?

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.
