Guy Lowell designed the Building of Arts in Bar Harbor. Some of the financial support for the building came from Mrs. Henry Dimock, Mrs. Robert Abbe, Henry Lane Eno, George Dorr and George Vanderbilt. It was dedicated on July 13, 1907 with a concert that featured Emma Eames.

The Boston Symphony performed there as did several other notables of the time.

The Building of Arts stood off the Cromwell Harbor Road near the corner of Kebo Street. It burned in the Fire of 1947.
