UMMA Director Comments on Obama Inauguration Poet

Comments from George Kinghorn, executive director and curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art (UMMA), were included in news reports by the Bangor Daily News, Portland Press Herald and Channel 7 (WVII) about Bethel, Maine resident and longtime Kinghorn friend Richard Blanco, who has been selected to be the featured poet at President Barack Obama’s 2013 inauguration Jan. 21. In 2009, Kinghorn brought Blanco to UMaine, where the poet gave readings on campus and at UMMA in Bangor. It was at the museum that Blanco read “Looking for The Gulf Motel,” which was published in 2012 and was the title of his third book of poetry.
