Art of the People: Folk Art in Maine

Object and memory, serve as a powerful way to explore history and to connect to the lives of people in the past.

Exhibit

Memorializing Civil War Veterans: Portland & Westbrook

Exhibit

Fallen Heroes: Maine's Jewish Sailors and Soldiers

Thirty-four young Jewish men from Maine died in the service of their country in the two World Wars. This project, including a Maine Memory Network exhibit, is meant to say a little something about some of them. More than just names on a public memorial marker or grave stone, these men were getting started in adult life. They had newly acquired high school and college diplomas, they had friends, families and communities who loved and valued them, and felt the losses of their deaths.
