USA Today’s 10Best featured the University of Maine Museum of Art in the article, “10 reasons you need to travel the Maine Art Museum Trail.” The trail encompasses the state’s nine leading art museums within a day’s drive of each other, allowing visitors to experience the state’s natural settings along the way that inspired some of the works in the museums, according to the article. Steve Bartlett’s gallery, “Works from 2013-2018,” located at the UMMA in Bangor, was included in the list of must-see highlights for visitors. Bartlett’s exhibited works include a variety of abstract wooden sculptures with which he “simply hopes to engage and provoke the imagination.” The museum is the only publicly owned institution in the state that has a permanent collection of fine arts, featuring more than 3,500 original works, according to the article.
