Portland Art Museum
The Portland Art Museum (PAM) in Portland, Oregon was founded in 1892, making it the oldest art museum in the Pacific Northwest. When current renovations are complete, PAM will be one of the twenty-five largest art museums in the USA, at 240,000 total square feet. The permanent collection has more than 32,000 works of art, and at least one major traveling exhibition is presented most of the time. PAM features a Center for Native American Art, a Center for Northwest Art, Permanent exhibitions of Asian Art, and an outdoor public sculpture garden.
