This public event is the opening celebration of the Farnsworth Art Museum’s Stories of the Land and Its People exhibition, a year-long arts-integration program that features the work of 250 local students. Throughout the academic year, Farnsworth Art Museum educators, teaching artists and classroom teachers in partnership, led the students’ arts-learning experiences in six public schools in Appleton, Camden-Rockport, Hope, Lincolnville, Rockland and Waldoboro. They created works of art which are on view at the Farnsworth May 21, 2017 to June 18, 2017.
At this event, the community is invited to join educators, teaching artists, and student artists in celebrating the students’ final presentation of arts-integrated work. The opening ceremony begins at the Strand Theatre at 1:00 p.m. with a red carpet entrance at 12:40 p.m., followed by the exhibition opening at the Farnsworth Art Museum 2:00 – 5:00 p.m..
This program is free and open to the public.
