Events

  • The venue’s 538 Congress Street doors open a half hour before program start time, unless otherwise noted.
  • Until further notice, SPACE requires that all audience members, artists, and staff as well as all audience members wear masks during indoor events. We ask audience members to re-mask immediately between sips of drinks or bites of food. Please note updated CDC guidance that cloth masks do not offer as much protection against the Omicron variant as disposable surgical masks, KN94s, KN95s, and N95s.

Exhibitions

  • When visiting our exhibitions during open gallery hours, please use the 534 Congress Street entrance.
  • Masks are required for all gallery visitors. Please note updated CDC guidance that cloth masks do not offer as much protection against the Omicron variant as disposable surgical masks, KN94s, KN95s, and N95s.

*Please note a January 2022 update: Our current exhibition is a media installation viewable from the street after dark, we will have no regular gallery hours until March 2022.

If our gallery hours do not work with your schedule, we happily encourage you to email us at info@space538.org to arrange accommodations for another time. If you would like to bring a group of over ten people at a time, we ask you kindly e-mail us in advance.

Follow us on Instagram or sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with virtual programming or any event cancellations. Additionally, we invite you to walk by our facade exhibition spaces: the 538 Congress Street window, our flagpole, and our poster case. Take care of each other and we look forward to continuing to offer arts programs and exhibitions as safely as possible during these times.

Downtown street parking is possible with a paid meter or the Passport Parking App, parking is free after 6pm and on Sundays, or on certain blocks as marked. The Spring Street Garage run by the City of Portland is the closest to SPACE. During Cross Arena events or if there is a full garage, we recommend parking at the Elm Street Garage next to the Portland Public Library.
