Stories of Maine: An Incomplete History is a collaboration between the Portland Museum of Art and the Maine Humanities Council to commemorate Maine’s bicentennial. The objects on view are interpreted by individuals from across the state. The exhibit had a “virtual” opening on May 1.

The resulting exhibition includes objects such as an oil lamp from the Monhegan lighthouse and a 1906 Old Town canoe, as well as artworks such as David Driskell’s painting Pine and Moon.



Stories of Maine will be on view in the PMA galleries when the museum re-opens—on a date yet to be determined—but for now, it appears in digital form at the URL as part of the PMA’s online Art at Home suite of art, activities, and stories during the closure period, which aims to uplift museum audiences, expand their worlds, and spark their imaginations through dynamic digital content, videos made in collaboration with creative partner p3.
