This annual event reshapes the Museum experience through installations, performances, and presentations throughout the campus. Innovative activities push the conventional boundaries of art.
Activities go all day, from 10am until midnight. But things really get interesting in the evening with performances, tours, workshops, games, and more – inside and outside the museum.
This year, Museum-goers will have the opportunity to get a hair cut in the style of their favorite Museum artwork; pick up art-inspired recipes by popular Portland chefs; make their own Museum postcards; engage in beer/art conversations; get a tattoo inspired by artwork in the collection; enjoy food inspired by the Museum; find dance in unexpected places; square dance the night away; and much more. Shine a Light offers an exciting opportunity to reinvigorate your relationship with art by engaging with the Museum in unexpected ways and to join the community at large in celebrating art.
