Located in the Portland "downtown arts district", PMA has holdings of American, European, and contemporary art, as well as iconic works from Maine—highlighting the rich artistic tradition of the state and its artists.
Founded in 1882, the collection today consists of over 18,000 artworks, ranging from Andy Warhol and Winslow Homer to Louise Nevelson and Claude Monet.
The museum mounts approximately 10 changing exhibitions per year. The National Landmark Winslow Homer Studio, owned by the PMA, is open to guided tours.
