Portland Museum of Art Receives Major Gift
Emily Eaton Moore, a trustee and longtime supporter of the Museum, who passed away in March.
PORTLAND, ME.- The Portland Museum of Art announced that it has received a major gift of approximately $3 million from the family of Emily Eaton Moore, a trustee and longtime supporter of the Museum, who passed away in March. One of the largest gifts made to the Museum in the last 10 years, this gift will support the Museum’s mission and vision.

“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of this gift from Emily Moore and her family,” said former Museum Board President James Moody. “Emily’s commitment and service to the Museum and its collection were extraordinary and with this gift her legacy of support of the arts in Maine will live on.”

Emily Eaton Moore, a Portland resident, was passionate about the Museum and its collection. She served on many committees over the years, most recently as a trustee and a valued member of the Museum’s Collection Committee. Not only was she a generous supporter of the Museum, she shared her skills and talents in a number of areas, particularly fundraising. Emily served as assistant director and acting director of the Museum in the early 1980s. She was also a principal liaison with the architecture firm I. M. Pei & Partners during the design and construction of the Museum’s award-winning Charles Shipman Payson Building. During her career, Emily worked for Maine Savings Bank, the City of Portland, and as director of admissions at Waynflete School. Mrs. Moore graduated from the University of Southern Maine with degrees in English literature and Art History and earned a masters degree in fiction writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She was an accomplished short-story writer, a poet, an avid sailor who traveled the world, and supporter of the arts in Maine. Mrs. Emily Eaton Moore is survived by her husband, Charles “Kip” Moore, her daughter, Abby Woodman, and grandson, Shawn Hendrickson.
