#ThirdThursPMA is a monthly party at the Portland Museum of Art with live music, special programs, and community collaborations. It happens on the third Thursday of every month, is open to the public, and included in your museum admission (it's always free for members). Galleries are open until 9pm, giving #ThirdThursPMA party-goers an after hours viewing experience of extensive permanent collection and special exhibitions. Start your weekend early with #ThirdThursPMA!

Tonight, #ThirdThursPMA presents a maritime mixer and swing music! Join the folks at Experience Maine Maritime and toast Maine’s vibrant maritime traditions together. Experience Maine Maritime is a multiregional initiative developed by organizations from across the state to encourage maritime-related tourism by strengthening the public sense of the array of maritime experiences available in Maine. Check out The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America and get to know people who share your passion for the ocean and for maritime life in Maine!

If you're a land lubber, don't worry—the galleries are open, drinks will be served, and C.C. & the Swingset will perform their unique, acoustic take on swing music—they've been known to blend songs by everyone from Van Morrison to Whitney Houston into their sets.
