Celebrating Maine's Role in American Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum offers a nationally recognized collection of works from many of America's greatest artists. With 20,000 square feet of gallery space and over 15,000 works in the collection, there is always something new on view at the Farnsworth. The museum has one of the largest collections of works by sculptor Louise Nevelson. Its Wyeth Center features works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth. The Farnsworth's library is also housed in its Rockland, ME, campus. Two historic buildings, the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House, and Julia's Gallery for Young Artists complete the museum complex.

If you have any interest in American Art this is a must see. We saw sketches and watercolors by Andrew Wyeth and learned about the Olson family.

The 100th birthday of Andrew Wyeth. Extra works of his are on display. Wonderful museum. Many additional works of art besides Wyeth.

Not to be missed. Being a Wyeth fan might lead you here, but there are many fabulous works on display. Spacious, lovely setting.
