Farnsworth Art Museum

Opened in 1948, Farnsworth Art Museum is an art museum that specializes in American and Maine-inspired art. Celebrating Maine's role in American art, the Farnsworth offers a nationally recognized collection of works from many of America's greatest artists.

With over 20,000 square feet of gallery space and over 15,000 works in the collection, Farnsworth's permanent collection includes works by such artists as Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Sully, Thomas Eakins, Eastman Johnson, Fitz Henry Lane, Frank Benson, Childe Hassam, and Maurice Prendergast, as well as the nation's largest collections of works by the 20th-century sculptor Louise Nevelson. Four galleries are devoted to contemporary art.

Its Wyeth Center features one of the nation's largest collections of the paintings of the Wyeth family: N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, and Jamie Wyeth. The Farnsworth's library is also housed in its Rockland, Maine, campus. Two historic buildings, the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House, and Julia's Gallery for Young Artists complete the museum complex.

The Farnsworth is open year-round. Through the Farnsworth's remarkable collection, inventive exhibitions, wide-ranging intellectual resources and energetic educational programming, visitors from around the world gain a deep appreciation of the ongoing story of Maine's role in American art.
