Stories of the Land and Its People

Opening Ceremony for the Farnsworth Art Museum Exhibition

Stories of the Land and Its People will be celebrated with an hour-long program at 1 pm, Sunday, May 15 in the Strand Theatre in Rockland, followed by a preview and reception on the Farnsworth Art Museum campus. 

Now in its fifth year, this portion of Stories is a partnership between the Museum and six local schools: Appleton, Hope, Lincolnville, Islesboro, Rockland South School and Rockland District Middle School. While art instruction and art appreciation are being introduced into the teachers’ lessons, over three-hundred elementary and middle school students are taking their own photographs in the community and in their classrooms under the guidance of their teachers, museum educators, and mentor artists.  The students’ creations will be on display over the summer in Julia’s Gallery at the corner of Union Street and Elm Street through August 14 (Julia’s is not handicapped accessible), and in the Farnsworth’s main building on Main Street through October 30.

Watson Charitable Trust, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Peter McSpadden, Chichester du Pont Foundation, Jane’s Trust, Joyce Tenneson, Alexander Tenneson Cohen and James Abbott, The Mattina R. Proctor Foundation, Nellie Leaman Taft Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Campbell, Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation, Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation, CEI Capital Management LLC (supporting Stories expansion over seven years), two anonymous donors, with in-kind support provided by Partners for Enrichment.
