OBJECTS HAVE STORIES. TELL US YOURS.

The Portland Art Museum offers a unique opportunity to share your story about an object that is meaningful to you. Do you have something you would never give up? Like a favorite childhood toy, a military medal, or a memento? Something that lives on your wall, your mantle, or buried in a corner of your dresser? Something that evokes a time or person in your life, a place you miss, or something you hope for?

 

VIEW THE OBJECT STORIES COLLECTION
Objects often hold great personal and collective meaning and carry stories of particular times, places, and events. See what we mean when you explore the Collection. Or reserve your session today and be among the first to tell your story in an interactive booth located inside the Museum.

Generously funded by a Museum and Community Connections grant from the Metlife Foundation, Object Stories seeks to actively engage the broad public, and diversify museum audiences. The initiative’s main components are a video booth and gallery, storytelling workshops with Write Around Portland, videos created with Miracle Theatre Group, and an opening celebration in which workshop participants and the public are invited to come together to celebrate the power of storytelling and the opening of the public gallery and booth.

Object Stories is a program of the Portland Art Museum and the Northwest Film Center in collaboration with Write Around Portland and the Miracle Theatre Group. Design and fabrication provided by Ziba Design, Fashionbuddha, and EyeLevel. The project is generously supported by the Metlife Foundation, the Lehman Foundation, the Kress Foundation, and the PGE Foundation.
