Art History, Moving Image
The Bates College Museum of Art in Lewiston was founded in 1955 with the gift of The Marsden Hartley Memorial Collection. Another artist in the Bates College collection with ties to Maine is the “Pop” artist, Robert Indiana who paid homage to Hartley through a series of works called “The Hartley Elegies.” In addition to a significant collection of painting, photographs, prints and drawings, the museum is also a “laboratory” for the visual arts, exploring interpretations that expand more traditional views. The Bates College Museum of Art is home to William Pope.L, a renowned contemporary performance artist. The museum is also committed to building “creative community” ties through collaborative programs with area schools and arts organizations.
