Archiving the Arts from Ancient to Contemporary

Portland Art Museum

The Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon was established in 1892 with a collection of 100 plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculptures after several community leaders formed the Portland Art Association. More than a century later, its vast collection is housed in 112,000 square feet of galleries, renowned for its Native American art, English silver, and graphic arts. The museum remains committed to lifelong learning through education and community outreach programs, and its library is the area's most comprehensive visual arts resource open to the public.
