Art History, Moving Image
The University of Maine Museum of Art features more than 6,000 works including pieces by Winslow Homer, George Inness and Alfred Bricher. The museum boasts the only permanent fine arts collection owned by the people of the state of Maine. Vincent Hartgen, a professor and artist who established the museum in 1946, is featured in the program.The program explores the history of the museum and its plans for the future. The University of Maine Museum of Art was first established on the university campus in Orono for student instruction and to share its holdings with the surrounding community. This sharing of the arts is an important part of the story because in 1999, the museum was relocated to downtown Bangor. The move has given an even wider population access to Maine’s art collection.
