Art historian Daniel Kany reviewed the Colby Museum of Art in the Sunday Portland Press Herald Jan. 8, in which he examines the “museum’s status as a cultural leader.” Kany recognizes Colby as not just the largest museum in Maine, but “among the most significant and largest college art museums in the United States” and thus a cultural leader. “What I see inside of Maine’s leading art institution inspires moral clarity, a fully American sense of righteousness with open eyes to our communities, our past and our world,” Kany writes. “If you want to see cultural leadership in action, go to the Colby College Museum of Art.”
