General

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.

The [Collective] brings another once-in-a-lifetime pop up event to the heart of Rockland. Our network of makers will create a colorful world of pattern and paper and surprise!

Featuring 2017 Grammy award nominee Sofi Tukker, we will mark the end of winter with a down-n-dirty dance party.

SUMO STEW (#SUMOSTEW) is heading northeast to Rockland, Maine! Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com)returned to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (thebrooklynkitchen.com), a wonderfully multi-faceted cooking store and center for culinary education.

The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

The Maine Friends of Music ​chamber group ​will perform a varied Baroque and Beyond concert on Friday, November 4 at 2:00PM in the museum library. Admission is free with admission. The program will include music by Boismortier, Couperin, Devienne, Mozart, Beethoven, Field, Faure, and Joplin. Members of the ensemble are Sean Fleming, piano and harpsichord; Linda Brunner, flute; and David DeBolt, bassoon.
