A free bus ride from the University of Maine campus to Bangor will be offered to students Friday, Sept. 13 to attend the fall Downtown Bangor Arts Collaborative Art Walk.
A Cyr Bus will be available to board in front of the Collins Center for the Arts on campus at 4:30 p.m. Students will arrive at the Maine Discovery Museum in Bangor around 5:15 p.m. for a reception, orientation and welcome from Bangor City Councilor Joe Baldacci.
The students will then get the chance to explore the museum, art studios, shops and restaurants in downtown Bangor before a 6:30 p.m. dessert reception and overview from Director and Curator George Kinghorn at the University of Maine Museum of Art.
The bus will be available to board at 7:15 p.m. in the Harlow Street parking lot outside the upper-level of the UMMA, or nearby as street parking permits, and will leave Bangor at 7:30 p.m. to return to campus.
The trip is being organized by Liam Riordan, a University of Maine Humanities Initiative Advisory Board member and associate professor of history, and is made possible by campus funds provided by Robert Dana, vice president of student affairs.
