The University of Maine Museum of Art will extend its free admission policy for the public in 2013 as a result of a gift from Penobscot Financial Advisors.
Penobscot Financial Advisors has been a longtime sponsor of UMMA’s Community Partners Program, which provides support for education and exhibition programs, according to George Kinghorn, museum director and curator.
“We are grateful for Penobscot Financial Advisor’s generous sponsorship and ongoing support over the years,” he says. “The Museum of Art is a vital community outreach resource of the University of Maine and we are delighted to once again offer free admission so that all citizens may enjoy the museum’s collections and changing exhibitions.”
James E. Bradley, CEO of the financial advisory firm formerly known as Bradley & Johndrow, LLC, notes that the arts play an important role in the community and region.
“We are pleased to provide access so that all may enjoy the exceptional art on display at the museum. We are delighted to support UMMA’s efforts,” Bradley says.
Kinghorn says the sponsorship allows individuals to visit often and have meaningful experiences viewing original works of art by nationally recognized artists.
