This February 3, the Portland Museum of Art experience will extend outside the walls of the museum, through an innovative event and celebration called Lights Across Congress. This event, anchored by a 124 foot wide by 36 foot high multi-dimensional projection on the museum’s brick facade, will be the art and cultural event of the year.
At 6:00pm, we will start the countdown to the main event, accompanied by music, ice sculptures, and food trucks along Free Street. Then, at 6:30pm, watch from Congress Square as the building comes to life with a custom presentation by local production company, P3. The PMA will be awash with light, and you'll be welcome to come inside and take a first look at Your Museum, Reimagined, with completely reinstalled galleries, new special exhibitions, gallery talks, a new installation of The Workshop, celebratory treats in the PMA Café, and activities for all ages.
Free and open to the public! Congress Square.
