About Patron Society

Members of the Patron Society are the Portland Art Museum’s most generous annual donors, helping more than 300,000 visitors each year to enrich their lives, spark their imaginations, and challenge their minds through the power of art. Ambitious special exhibitions and the 42,000 objects in the Museum’s collections bring the world to Portland—from ancient China and early America, from the salons of Europe to the studios of today’s international visionaries. Through their deep commitment to the Museum, members of the Patron Society have the opportunity to experience these treasures—and access the world of art—in new and exciting ways.
