2020 Marks Maine’s 200th year of statehood and Arta is celebrating!
At this unusual time, we are unable to invite you into our gallery to present our much-anticipated Bicentennial Exhibit. So, we are making it available for you to view online. We enjoyed putting this show together for you and hope you take delight in the history and whimsy that makes Maine unique and irresistible. We will continue to add to this evolving exhibit so, check back often!
Rescued from a trash heap, the first item we bring to you is the”traveling library.” This Maine artifact represents our collective history and, coincidentally, our current state of affairs. Within the lid of this beautiful box, we found a very compelling notice to librarians regarding “contagious and infectious diseases.” Click here to read the notice in full.
