Maine Office of Tourism Announces Affiliation with The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Exhibition

Published on : Saturday, February 11, 2017

unnamed (1)The Maine Office of Tourism has announced its support of the opening reception for Marsden Hartley’s Maine, a major exhibition presented by The Metropolitan Museum of Art at The Met Breuer location in New York from March 15 through June 18, 2017. Visitors can also see the show for a second time this summer and fall, in the painter’s native Maine, when it moves to the Colby College Museum of Art from July 8 through November 12, 2017.

 

Showcasing the American artist’s lifelong artistic engagement with his home state of Maine, Marsden Hartley’s Maine will feature approximately 90 paintings and drawings that illuminate his extraordinarily expressive range, from Post-Impressionist interpretations of seasonal change in inland Maine in the early 1900s to folk-inspired depictions, beginning in the late 1930s, of the state’s hearty inhabitants, majestic coastline, and great geological icon, Mount Katahdin.

 

This landmark show will undoubtedly inspire visitors to experience Maine this summer and retrace Hartley’s footsteps for themselves, from the Western mountains to the Downeast sea coast and as far north as Aroostook County. The VisitMaine.com website will feature a map tracing the locations throughout the state that inspired Hartley, as well as information on museums and libraries that feature more of Hartley’s original work.
