When you make friends with a work of art at the Museum, you begin a friendship that will grow and grow, just like when you make friends with a person. And you’ll discover that whenever you spend time with your friend, you’ll learn new things about what you see and how you feel.
Although the Museum is closed to the general public, we can still make friends with the works of art there. We’re going to get to know City Point, Vinalhaven, a work of art by Marsden Hartley. The painting was inspired by a real place, an island in Maine, and the art project you can create at home can be inspired by a real place that you know. Give it a try!
