This summer, the Portland Museum of Art presents three separate exhibitions that, collectively, examine Modernism from the perspective of home and abroad, as well as Maine’s role in the post-modern art world and its continued influence. The exhibitions tell us something about how we lived, how we changed and how Modernist ideas hatched a century ago present themselves today.
