Unfortunately, due to steadily declining participation over the past 20 years, the Museums by Mail program will be fully discontinued in July 2012. For the 2011-12 school year you will still be able to borrow up to three of our 10 most popular exhibits from the Museum traveling collection for use in your classroom. Maine children’s art was not gathered for the coming year, and will not be available. Our standard paper announcement and catalog will no longer be mailed, but you may click HERE to see these selections.
You may request these exhibits by contacting the museum’s Registrar Steve Ringle at 207-561-3366 or by email: email@example.com. Exhibits are available to teachers on a first-come, first-served basis; requests must be received by July 1, as always. Exhibits must be picked-up personally from the Museum of Art at 40 Harlow Street and may be kept for one month. Teachers are also responsible for their safe return to the Museum. As such, we will no longer provide reimbursement for shipping the exhibit cases.
The Vincent A. Hartgen Traveling Exhibitions program is supported by a grant from the Patrons of the Arts.
