Kinghorn speaks with Maine Edge about ARTober celebration

George Kinghorn, director and curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor, spoke with The Maine Edge about ARTober, a monthlong celebration of arts and culture in the city. UMMA is one of several venues participating in the celebration that will blend new events with ongoing programing by existing arts organizations, according to the article. “It’s natural with the museum being downtown and being very involved in the efforts happening in the downtown community for us to play a role in [ARTober]. We play a role in many kinds of these things, like the Artwalk, so this was natural for us,” Kinghorn said. “It was wonderful timing and happened to align with the opening of the fall exhibitions.” WVII (Channel 7) also reported on ARTober.
