Art Museums

Exhibits & Events Showcase World-class Local & National Art

Visitors wishing to experience the rich artistic heritage of Maine and the United States through the work of world-class artists will have the opportunity to do so in Portland.

Downtown is the location of Portland’s First Friday Art Walks, Maine’s largest free monthly cultural event in which galleries, museums, and alternative venues open their doors, allowing residents and visitors a chance to see local venues and exhibits and to talk to local artists. Art Walks are a popular celebration of the creative community and are always busy, festive evenings in the city.

The Portland Museum of Art located in the center of downtown Portland has been called the cultural heart of the city, appealing to casual art lovers and aficionados alike. The PMA boasts significant holdings of American, European, and contemporary art, as well as iconic works from Maine which highlight the rich artistic tradition of the state and its artists. Visitors can tour the Winslow Homer Studio, view current exhibits and masterworks on permanent display in a complex of historic buildings, attend family activities, movies and curator talks.

A stone’s throw away from the Portland Museum of Art is Maine College of Art, where visitors can view exhibits of international and national emerging artists on the contemporary art scene and enjoy a wide variety of arts and community events. Hands-on, interactive fun from the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine is located in the Arts District as well, welcoming children to play, learn and explore with their families.

Just outside the city in the Mid-coast region, visitors will find nationally recognized collections of American art that feature works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth – America’s first family of art – at Rockland’s Farnsworth Art Museum. For those interested in a comprehensive gallery experience, Maine’s seven leading art museums invite visitors to experience and array of art while exploring Maine’s spectacular coastline on The Maine Art Museum Trail. The tour takes participants to art museums from Brunswick to Bangor.
