In 2017 the Farnsworth is presenting two major exhibitions featuring the work of women who have played important roles in twentieth-century American art, both of whom also had deep connections to Maine: Marguerite Zorach and Louise Nevelson.
Marguerite Zorach – An Art-Filled Life is an exhibition that brings together sixty paintings and textiles by Marguerite Thompson Zorach made between 1910 and 1965. In highlighting her contributions as a modernist who helped changed the course of American art, the Farnsworth presents the full range of her skills.
This exhibition will explore Marsden Hartley’s complex and visually arresting relationship with his native state—from the lush Post-Impressionist inland landscapes with which he launched his career, to the later roughly rendered paintings of Maine’s rugged coastal terrain, its hardy inhabitants, and the magisterial Mount Katahdin.
From the creator of the Tony Award-winning Million Dollar Quartet, we are proud to produce the world premiere of Heartbreak Hotel. This tender story follows Elvis Presley in the early years of his bourgeoning career as he and Sam Phillips create the music that will forever change their lives.
A cross-section of Maine’s brightest, most visionary minds talk about their Maine experience at work and play.
These people lead organizations, build brands, and fund growth.
They are a few of the many who work each day to impact positive change for Maine’s future. And they are ready to share their stories.
