Thank you for being so patient and flexible as the PMA figured out how Youth Art Month Pick Up would happen. We are very happy that we could have YAM on view for an extra month to share this incredible display of youth art with more audiences.
We will begin de-installing YAM on July 29th and will begin pick up times for artwork on August 6th. Due to new restrictions in the PMA building because of COVID-19, you MUST have a reserved date and time in order to pick up the artwork. We cannot accommodate drop-ins or people who do not reserve a date and time ahead of time. In order to reserve a date and time, please fill out this form (https://forms.gle/9FEcRM69FytyAa8L6). Someone from the PMA will contact you to confirm your date/time - your date/time is not confirmed until someone from PMA confirms. Please do your best to adhere to your scheduled time.
Guidelines for a Successful YAM Pick-Up Please schedule a date and time to pick up your youth’s artwork HERE Come to the PMA’s Loading Dock entrance, located at 99 Spring Street When you come down the driveway, you will see a tent set up to the left. Museum staff will be there. Please drive your car into one of the parking spaces near the tent. When you park, please remain in your car. If possible, please put on a mask and then roll down your window Unlock your car doors We will ask you for the name of the student artist you are picking up for and then will place the artwork either in the backseat or the trunk (whichever you prefer.) You must remain in your vehicle throughout the entire process. We unfortunately cannot allow anyone to come into the building for any circumstances.
Please call the PMA Loading Dock (207) 775-6148 x3322 if you are running late or if you experience any last-minute delays.
