More Ideas: Portland Art Museum

The Portland Art Museum was founded in 1892 and is the oldest art museum in the Pacific Northwest. The Museum was originally started through the Portland Art Association, an organization that was founded by seven distinguished cultural leaders of Portland. These leaders envisioned a high-class and educational museum for citizens every socioeconomic class.

With the help of some generous Portland citizens, the Museum was able to purchase its first collection that year. The collection was worth approximately $10,000 at the time and consisted of about one hundred plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. This collection was named the Corbett Collection after the Portland local who donated the funds, Henry Corbett. The collection went on display at the Museum's original location, a public library, and it was immediately popular and attracted all kinds of artistic Portlanders.

The decades to follow consisted of the obtaining priceless collections and hosting prominent gallery showings. One of the most exciting showings in the Museum's history was hosted in 1923. The exhibition featured paintings by Picasso, Matisse, Prendergast, Burchfield, and Weber.

The Museum moved to its final and current location in the cultural district in 1932, the building was designed by renowned Portland architect Pietro Bulluschi. About six years later, a wing designed by Bulluschi was added to the Museum, the Hirsch Wing. This wing doubled the gallery space at the Museum. This expansion solidified the Museum's prominence in the Portland community, and it would lonely continue to gain community support and interest in the years to come.

The Museum remained a strong cultural hub throughout World War II. It continued to grow and expand not only its structure, but its collection. Many exciting exhibitions have come through the Museum in the last century, including one featuring Vincent van Gogh in 1959 which had more than 80,000 visitors alone. The proceeds from this exhibition allowed the Museum to purchase Calude Monet's Waterlillies. A priceless and beloved piece and a staple to the Museum's collection.
