Portland Art Museum
Also notable at the museum is a comprehensive archive of Impressionist paintings from Europe, including Vincent Van Gogh's The Ox Cart, and a varied collection of paintings and objects from across Asia; artwork like pre-Han Dynasty calligraphy from China and prints from Japan's Edo era reflect Portland's large local populations from both of these countries.
Since 2008, winners of the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards, a fierce biennial competition for artists from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana, have had their artwork displayed at PAM; the next CNAA winners will have their artwork exhibited in Fall 2013. The grand prize of $10,000 is Portland's version of London's famous Turner Prize. The museum is closed on Mondays.
