January Family Day: Personality Portraits

This month we are inspired by the striking portraits of American photographer Richard Avedon in Richard Avedon: Portraits, 1952-1970, on view through February 17, 2019. While Avedon’s iconic portraits focus on the sitter’s face and clothing, he also sought to capture their personality. Come explore how to assemble a mixed-media portrait that shows a person’s character without depicting their face! What colors, symbols, or patterns will you use?

Teens at the Museum: We Are Cinema

The PMA is opening its doors to young adults ages 13-19 for an all-access event. There will be free tickets to the Rolling Tapes Film Festival for you and your friends, as well as free food, a raffle, and giveaways. Also, enjoy drop-in pin making projects, gallery talks designed and run by our Homer High School Fellows, and check out the Richard Avedon show, featuring label text written by teens.
