Colby College Museum of Art
Waterville, Maine

Celebrating 60 years of opening doors to art

Thank you to all who joined the Colby College Museum of Art’s Summer Luncheon and 60th Anniversary Celebration. This annual event is a special time to rejoice in the successes of this institution, our mission to transform lives through art, and the people like you who make it possible.

Over the past six decades, the Colby Museum has grown from a small regional gem to an international destination for American art and a model for academic engagement. This has never been better reflected than in the vibrant exhibitions on view this summer. The two exhibitions that opened Saturday—Wíwənikan… the beauty we carry and Occupy Colby: Artists Need to Create on the Same Scale That Society Has the Capacity to Destroy, Year 2—exemplify the Museum’s contribution to the intellectual life of the College and our shared commitment to work collaboratively—across disciplines, on our campus, and with our community—to address critical issues we face in Maine and globally.

It was a great pleasure to honor the accomplishments of Jeremy Frey and Phong Bui at this year’s event. Thank you to Museum Governor and Wabanaki cultural leader Theresa Secord for presenting the Cummings Award for Artistic Excellence to Jeremy Frey, whose cutting-edge traditional basketry combines innovation with centuries-old forms. We are also grateful to artist Katherine Bradford for her generous words honoring Phong Bui with the Jetté Award for Leadership in the Arts. Phong, curator of Occupy Colby and a 2019 Lunder Institute fellow, is a visionary artist, writer, independent curator, teacher, activist, and cofounder and artistic director of the Brooklyn Rail.
