Through the generous support of an individual donor, PMA has come together with the Portland Stage, Portland Symphony Orchestra, and Portland Ovations to create Culture Club-Portland to advance arts education in our city. Through Culture Club, we inspire students by providing regular access to quality arts, building community, and making the arts a consistent part of students’ education. Culture Club-Portland provides students in the Portland Public School District with the opportunity to participate in the museum’s programs every school year.

Portland is Maine's business, financial and retail capital and the largest city in the state. Seascapes and cityscapes blend harmoniously in Portland, perched on a peninsula, jutting out into island-studded Casco Bay. The metropolitan hub of Maine's south coast region, Portland is a progressive, lively city incorporating the character of yesteryear into a modern urban environment. Historic architecture blends gracefully with the new as you stroll along her working waterfront or the cobblestone streets of the restored Old Port section of the city.

Creative Portland is a nonprofit organization that leverages, grows and sustains Portland’s creative industries, enterprises and workforce.
