Thank you for your support and participation in our historic 75th Anniversary Celebration! Our momentous year of exhibitions and events attracted a record number of visitors from throughout the state, across the nation, and even around the world.

Your energy and enthusiasm for all we do is contagious. Thanks to you and our generous community, the Museum has earned a well-deserved reputation for our premier collection of American art.

For three years in a row, the Fletcher Family Foundation has made a generous gift to the Museum and the people of Maine. The Foundation will once again match your contribution to the Museum Fund for Excellence dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000.

Right now, your gift will have double the impact AND you’ll help us continue to make each visit to the Museum extraordinary. We know you will be as generous as you are able.

Make a gift!

Your gift to the Museum Fund for Excellence brings art to students, youth, families, teachers, artists, and everyone who loves the arts. It lifts our community. As we turn the calendar to a new year, we invite you to be a part of all that is to come.

Experience art 365. Our promise of a year-round resource – onsite, offsite and online – and an anchor for the economy is expanding. Thanks to you and to our national funding partner the Art Bridges Foundation, we will be launching Access for All – First Fridays at the Farnsworth.

See more art. We will open 8 new exhibitions! View never-before-seen paintings by Andrew Wyeth, learn about traditional Penobscot basketmaking, be empowered by Lynn Drexler, and more.

Meet the next generation of artists. Burgeoning artists will have a place, a voice, a stage to explore their gifts through the Farnsworth’s new solo exhibition series, Momentum. Momentum launches this February with an inaugural presentation of painter Emilie Stark-Menneg.

Bring students into the arts. Farnsworth educators have worked with local teachers and administrators to design a yearlong curriculum that helps middle and high school students feel more connected to community.

None of this is possible without your support. Thank you from all of us at the Farnsworth.
