Summer Luncheon

Thank you!

The Colby College Museum of Art is grateful to the over 500 guests who attended the 2018 Summer Luncheon. The day began with a conversation between Carolyn Muzzy Director and Chief Curator Sharon Corwin and the 2018 Cummings Award for Artistic Excellence recipient Rackstraw Downes. The Luncheon also celebrated the exhibitions on view: Self and Society: The Norma Boom Marin Collection of German Expressionist Prints, Modern Wonder: The John Marin Collection, City of Ambition: Photography of the Collection, Contemporary Highlights, and On the Farm: Weathervanes from a Distinguished New England Collection.

The following day, friends from Waterville and beyond attended Community Day and enjoyed free indoor and outdoor activities, live music by Gent Treadly sponsored by Paul J. Schupf LL.D.’06, food trucks, and more.
