Culture Club Logo
Established in 2012, Culture Club-Portland is a consortium of local arts organizations created to support cultural experiences for students in public schools.  The consortium, brought together by a generous anonymous donor, includes the Portland Museum of Art, Portland Ovations, Portland Stage, and Portland Symphony Orchestra.  Culture Club-Portland has the aspirational goal of providing a free arts experience in all four member organizations for every child in Portland Public Schools, every year.

Portland Museum of Art

PMA’s free, one-hour educational experiences for Pre-K to 12th grade students use authentic works of art to inspire and encourage critical thinking and to make real-world connections. The programs use conversation, inquiry, and interactive, hands-on activities to explore themes relevant to your students. Tour experiences are customizable, so students and teachers can connect classroom curriculum with specific artworks, topics, eras, or people—or just come here to experience something completely new.
