UMaine Museum of Art Mentioned in Press Herald Article on Miami Art Fair
The University of Maine Museum of Art and George Kinghorn, the museum’s director and curator, were included in a Portland Press Herald article about Art Basel, a popular art fair in Miami Beach, that attracts artists, curators and gallery directors from all over the country. Kinghorn, who came to Maine from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida, has attended the Miami art fairs more than a dozen times, according to the article. At this year’s fair, Kinghorn used money from the museum’s acquisition fund to purchase two paintings that will be displayed in the Bangor museum in the spring, the article states. Kinghorn also said he uses the gathering to scout artists to show in Maine.
