Farnsworth hosts After Party for Rockland Shorts


On Friday, June 1, The Collective, the Farnsworth Art Museum’s new membership group, will host an After Party for the International short film series Rockland Shorts at The Lincoln Street Center for the Arts and Education, at 24 Lincoln Street in Rockland, Maine. The party will take place from 9:30 p.m. to midnight.

This third and final Rockland Shorts After Party of the year will once again feature cocktails, savory treats, a happening artistic scene and dance tunes, provided on this occasion by DJ Mark Kelly. The first 2012 Rockland Shorts After Party took place on Friday, February 3 at the Yvette Torres Fine Arts Gallery and the second was held in the Farnsworth’s Wyeth Center. This will be an occasion to discuss the short films featured in the evening’s lineup at The Strand, and also to celebrate Lincoln Street Center’s many wonderful contributions to the artistic and educational community in the midcoast.

Lincoln Street Center for the Arts and Education is scheduled to close its doors on June 30. Preceding the after party, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Lincoln Street Center will be hosting a farewell gathering which will include studio tours and a pot luck reception.
The fee for the After Party is as follows: free for Collective members, $10 for Farnsworth members, and $12 for nonmembers. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling the membership office at 207-596-6256. For those attending the Rockland Shorts International Short Film Series at The Strand Theatre, the fee includes both the series and the After Party. The Collective event is sponsored in part by Bangor Savings Bank and Lincoln Street Center for the Arts and Education.
