Press Herald speaks with Kinghorn about expansion at Zillman museum

The Portland Press Herald talked with George Kinghorn, the director of the University of Maine’s Zillman Art Museum, about the addition of five new galleries at the museum. “Not only does the expansion enhance the visitor experience, but the five new galleries allow us to showcase works from the contemporary collection and mount exhibitions of nationally significant contemporary artists. The museum’s goal has always been to introduce audiences to artists that one would typically have to travel to larger urban centers to encounter,” Kinghorn said. The new galleries, which will add 5,000 square feet to the museum, will open on Sept. 11. More information, including the museum schedule, is online.
