Maine Things explores how a collecting organization stays relevant and will feature photographs, signs, paintings and drawings, needlework, and a silhouette–all of which recently have been accessioned by MHS. The show will be up through April 30.
On view in our main gallery is the exhibit, Wired! How Electricity Came to Maine, which explores the electrification of Maine during the 20th century, and how a rural state became modern.
Both exhibits are open to the public free of charge during First Friday.
