September 8th: Aaron T. Stephan Exhibit: To Borrow, Cut, Copy and Steal

Sep 8, 2014 @ 10:00am   Events, Member Events, News, News & Events

Portland artist Aaron T. Stephan is known for his take-offs from, and take-downs of, characteristic or “signature” gestures by artists throughout the American modern and contemporary canon. In his first solo exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art, part of our Circa series of exhibitions featuring contemporary artists, Stephan will present a suite of sculptural installation and recent prints that showcases his witty dialogue with the formalities of the art museum by making mischief with pedestals and architecture, and with the conventions of mass reproduction.

On Thursday, September 18 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), join the #ThirdThursPMA crowd as we head back to school with a special party for artists, creators, and craftspeople of all kinds! The folks at Artist & Craftsman Supply will take over the museum, offering soft-linoleum printing for all ages and sketching activities in the galleries. Get creative while listening to the progressive sounds of hip-hop instrumentalists Jaw Gems as they play a rare set in the Selma Wolf Black Great Hall, and start the school year in style. It’s going to be the party of the season. Free for college students with valid I.D. For more information, visit www.portlandmuseum.org.

#ThirdThursPMA is a monthly party at the PMA with live music, unique programming, and community collaborations. It happens on the third Thursday of every month, is open to the public, and is included in your museum admission—which is always free for members. Stay up late with the PMA as we keep our galleries open until 9 p.m., allowing #ThirdThursPMA partygoers after-hours viewings of our extensive collection and special exhibitions. Start your weekend early with #ThirdThursPMA.
