Portland Museum of Art Announces Free Admission for Everyone Twenty-one Years Old and Under

The Portland Museum of Art in Maine is changing its admission policy to offer free admission to everyone age twenty-one and under beginning on April 11. The policy change was backed by philanthropist Susie Konkel, who is a well-known advocate for youth. All eligible visitors will also be able to sign up for the Susie Konkel Pass, which will provide holders with opportunities to attend special events such as free screenings of PMA Films.

“I’m honored to work with the staff at the PMA to ensure that every child in the Maine community and throughout the world can feel the joy and wonder that comes from experiencing magnificent works of art,” Konkel said. “It’s my hope that children, teens, and young adults alike will discover the many ways that art appreciation can enrich their lives, and also feel inspired and empowered to share their voices with the world. I’m incredibly gratified to help the PMA share its wonderful collection with children far and wide.”
