Farnsworth Art Museum
The Farnsworth Art Museum offers a nationally-recognized collection of American art in its elegantly appointed galleries. Great names in 18th- and 19th-century American art history such as Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Sully, Thomas Eakins, Eastman Johnson, Fitz Henry Lane, Frank Benson, Childe Hassam, and Maurice Prendergast are represented in the Museum’s permanent collection, entitled Maine in America.
The Museum also houses the nation’s second-largest collection of works by premier 20th-century sculptor Louise Nevelson, and has opened four new galleries to showcase contemporary art. Its Wyeth Center exclusively features works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth—America’s first family of art.
The Farnsworth’s library is also housed in its Rockland, Maine campus. Two historic buildings—the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House—complete the Museum complex.
