  • 76. Portland Art Museum: Shine A Light: Programming Goals (as written for 2010 & 2011) Programming •  Situate art (producing, interpreting, enjoying, puzzling over) as a living activity that everyone has the potential to participate in •  Encourage an atmosphere of participation between the museum, its visitors, and artists. •  Activate gallery spaces that suggest the museum is also a “site” of art production and practice. •  Situate the entire museum as place of multi-layered interpretations, conversations, and unplanned directions, multiple interpretations in the galleries •  Inspire inquiry into the connections between art and everyday life. •  Have fun! Audience •  To make the museum feel relevant to young arts-interested audiences, especially people between 18-45 years old. 76   Image copyright: please contact presenter
