What Objects Tell Maine’s Stories?

In 2020, the State of Maine celebrates its Bicentennial, and to mark this historic occasion, the Portland Museum of Art wants to hear from you!
 

Now through January, 2019 we’re asking everyone with a love of Maine to share the objects that help tell this state’s stories. What embodies Maine to you? Is it something that speaks to our cultures, natural resources, or industries; a work of art, poem, or book; a family heirloom or keepsake?

The objects you share with us could become part of a special PMA exhibition celebrating 200 years of Maine statehood.

It’s easy to contribute: just fill out the form below to upload pictures or files and tell us why these objects represent Maine to you.
