The Portland Museum of Art & Sports is located at Portland State University’s Rec Center.
An institution within an institution, the museum was founded in 2015 as a dynamic space
dedicated to the exploration of two subjects that are rarely paired together:
contemporary art and recreational sports.
Through installations, events and programming that showcase local to international artists
the museum seeks to explore unconventional situations for engagement.
Expanding an art establishment into the realm of recreation initiates conversation between
these two practices, their practitioners and their audiences. The museum is ever-growing
with new acquisitions.
We invite you to observe, enjoy and activate the spaces where art and sports intersect.

The Portland Museum of Art & Sports Grand Opening & Tour was May 13, 2016 as part of
Assembly a free four-day set of presentations, discussions, interventions, and activities that
address topics related to art and social practice.

This project was made possible by the PSU Campus Rec Artist-In-Residence program.

Directed and curated by Lauren Moran and Anke Schüttler.

Inspired by Annina Lingens’ «n.t. (childrens altar)» we created a prompt for passers by to think about their own emotions related to sports. This book contains most of the answers and stories.
