Portland Art Museum

Portland_Art_Museum_interior_(September_2013)_-_3Art lovers take heed, Portland holds the oldest art museum on the West Coast, seventh oldest overall in the U.S, the locally (and internationally) loved Portland Art Museum. Established in 1892, this museum is today recognized world-wide for its truly impressive permanent collection, as well as ambitious special exhibitions. The special exhibitions are drawn from some of the world’s finest public and private collections and museum holdings. There are a total of over 42,000 objects displayed within the museum, an expanse of 112,000 square feet of galleries. Exploring these galleries will show you glimpses of art from ancient times to today, with no specific theme or genre to the works overall. On average this place will see over 350,000 visitors, an astounding crowd for any art museum!

Inside the Portland Art Museum, your group will have a choice to make: self-tour or opt in for a docent-led tour. Both options will show you the most popular and talked about collections, such as the highly popular and impressive collection regarding the native peoples of North America, the graphic arts collection, or the English Silver collection. As you will learn on the docent-led tour, this museum is an actively collecting institute, 90% of the entire museum dedicated to its own permanent collection. Discover such diverse and beautiful exhibits as Seeing Nature, Fotofolio, and even Thlatwa Thlatwa - Indigenous Currents.

There are also several other landmark buildings on campus to explore if you have enough time and/or interest, such as the Gilkey Center for Graphic Arts, Northwest Film Center, or Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art. Enjoy this premier venue for education in visual arts, a cornerstone of culture that will even provide you with a fun Museum Shop full of eclectic gifts and books on your way out!
