BDN mentions UMaine arts in roundup of winter events in Bangor

The Bangor Daily News mentioned the University of Maine Museum of Art and a University of Maine School of Performing Arts production in the article, “6 ways to survive this cold winter in Greater Bangor.” Two of the article’s recommendations for winter activities beyond watching TV while cooped up in your house are to visit an art museum or to see a local theatre show. Specifically, the BDN noted UMMA is free and open to the public from 10 a.m.—5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and has three new shows opening Jan. 17. “Edging Forward” is an exhibit of works by Brunswick-based abstract artist Richard Keen, “Reversible Roles” is an exhibit of paintings by Rockland-based artist Meghan Brady, and “Big Rock Candy Mountain” is an exhibit of drawings and paintings by Zach Horn. Several of the museum’s newly acquired paintings also will be on display, according to the article. For those interested in the performing arts, UMaine SPA will present Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods” at Hauck Auditorium March 1–3 and 7–10, the BDN reported.
