Summer Luncheon

Update on the 2021 Summer Luncheon

Many of you join us each year for the Colby College Museum of Art’s Summer Luncheon—a celebration of art, artists, and the communities that make the Colby Museum. Though this year we will not host a Summer Luncheon as a result of the ongoing impacts of the pandemic on planning, I look forward to gathering again in Waterville in the years to come.

I am thrilled to invite you back to visit the Colby Museum’s galleries again starting on June 4. Both of our terrific summer exhibitions will be open by July 20. Inside Out: The Prints of Mary Cassatt opens in the Davis Gallery on June 17 and runs through November 1. Curated by Shalini Le Gall and Justin McCann, it features prints from the Lunder Collection by the 19th-century American artist Mary Cassatt. Bob Thompson: This House Is Mine opens in our Upper and Lower Jetté Galleries on July 20 and remains on view at Colby through January 9, before it travels to the Smart Museum in Chicago, the High Museum in Atlanta, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. This groundbreaking retrospective organized by the Colby Museum and curated by Diana Tuite features the work of a remarkable and yet insufficiently known American artist. Both exhibitions will be accompanied by publications and rich virtual content on our website. 

We are excited to connect you with art. This summer we will offer group tours of our exhibitions and collection galleries. These tours, along with multigenerational resources and community programs, provide you with opportunities to explore art at the Colby Museum galleries in a variety of meaningful ways. 

I can’t wait to see you at the museum this summer!
