Free Friday @ Portland Art Museum


Portland Art Musuem offers a free Friday entrance. It usually costs $15 dollars. Lets go check out some cool art for free and then go have dinner somewhere after. Meet outside in the courtyard between the buildings near the coffee shop and the driftwood horse sculpture at 6pm. Then back out there at the same place again after at 7:30 to pick a place for dinner.

      Sorry not to see you, some waited inside and I waited outside! Warmer weather should help. Also I think Eric, the regular leader, has a meetup sign. Next time !

      Hi Ron, at 7:30 meet at the side entrance to leave for dinner, but everyone just wanders around in the museum in random fashion.

    Hi everyone... or is it Anyones,
    We have 70+ people signed up, truly a great crowd of fine folks. I discovered recently that the side door, the Museum entry we have used the last few times, is for Members of the Museum. They didn't pay much attention when a group of 10 went in that way, but if the magnificent horde of us happy Meetup folk come in all at once, we may have more than raised eyebrows in response. So tomorrow when we get together in the Sculpture Court at 6pm we may need to recalibrate our entry plan if in fact everyone shows up. Currently the Museum is in between big exhibits, but there is the entire Mark Building, plus various rooms in the main building to explore.

      I forgot to mention that the main entrance in the Park Blocks is the usual way to go in the building, which all but newcomers probably know. On Free Friday, especially with a blockbuster such as the Samurai exhibit, the line went around the block. But tomorrow may be more subdued.

    I'd like to make a preliminary list for who would like to go to dinner as a group after the Art Museum. If you would like to go to the pub for dinner, please send me a message directly, but not reply to all though comments, to keep email to a minimum. Of course there are many tables, but I'm thinking of the one I reserved for 20. Looking forward to seeing you, Meetup friends.

    January 17, 2014

    • Bill M.

      Nope, no need for a ticket. Even if you went thru the front door.

    Hi meetup friends,
    For dinner, I made a reservation at McMenamins Market Street Pub, that is at 1526 SW 10th that borders Market Street, just about 3-4 blocks south of the Art Museum near PSU. The is a table for 20 max that I reserved for those who wish to go with the group afterward. This adds a bit to parking options since there are a few parking lots closer to the pub.

    Hi all, the coffee shop is called Museum Grounds and I found out that it is closed by the time we arrive at 6 pm. We are meeting in the sculpture courtyard right by the 10th street side of the museum near the entrance to the coffee shop.
