Free admission at UMaine Museum of Art

Jan 05, 2013

Bangor — The University of Maine Museum of Art is extending its free admission policy for the public in 2013 as a result of a generous gift from Penobscot Financial Advisors, longtime sponsor of UMMA’s Community Partners Program.

George Kinghorn, museum director and curator, expressed gratitude for the gift and Penobscot Financial Advisors’ ongoing support over the years.

“The Museum of Art is a vital community outreach resource of the University of Maine and we are delighted to once again offer free admission so that all citizens may enjoy the museum’s collections and changing exhibitions,” he said.

UMMA’s Community Partners Program provides support for education and exhibition programs. Opening Friday, Jan. 18 will be “Michael Crouser: Dog Run”; “Robert Rivers: The Promised Land’; and “Candice Ivy: Honey from the Belly of the Lion.” In April, the “I-95 Triennial 2013” will open.

The museum at 40 Harlow St. is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 561-3350 or visit umma.umaine.edu.
