A symposium presented in conjunction with the exhibition Marsden Hartley’s Maine at the Colby College Museum of Art and the Colby College 2017–18 Humanities theme “Origins.”
On the occasion of Marsden Hartley’s Maine, an exhibition organized by the Colby College Museum of Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Colby College will present the symposium, “Somehow a Past: New England Regionalism, 1900 to 1960.” Taking its title from the autobiography of Marsden Hartley, an artist closely associated with Maine, this gathering of leading scholars will explore the interest in regional, New England subjects among American artists who contributed to the development and maturation of modernism.
Registration begins at 8 am in the Diamond Building. Symposium 9 am—5:15 pm with reception to follow in the Museum. For locations and additional information, please visit www.colby.edu/museum/somehow-a-past
