From Realism to Cubism, the Portland Museum of Art's galleries feature an exquisite collection of fine and decorative arts. The I. M. Pei-designed Charles Shipman Payson Building offers the ideal setting for modern art from the late 19th century to the present. The Beaux-Arts L. D. M. Sweat Memorial Galleries showcase American art from the post-Revolutionary period to the 1910s. You won't want to miss our newly renovated glass and ceramic galleries in the lower ground floor of the Museum, highlighting historic Portland glass and modern art glass.
