The Maine Museum of Photographic Arts is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020 with an exhibition of 100 photographs on loan from private collectors. Throughout the exhibition, stories will be included about how the images were attained — such as by trade, purchase from the artist, a gallery, at auction, or by inheritance. Maine has inspired photographers from around the world and a vast number of their images reside in collections held within the state.
“This exhibition’s intent is to show just how many of us own photographic works and to demystify the process of acquiring art.”
