Farnsworth’ Monhegan Trip

The Farnsworth Art Museum’s new membership group “The Collective” will be taking an overnight trip to Monhegan Island as part of its 2012 programming on Saturday, Sept. 15. The 2-day trip, open to Collective members as well as non-members, is in association with the current Farnsworth exhibition “Jamie Wyeth, Rockwell Kent and Monhegan,” on display through Dec. 30.

Join fellow art lovers for an exploration of Monhegan Island, which for more than 100 years has inspired a myriad of artists. Led by Farnsworth preparator, artist and former island resident Leith MacDonald, participants will enjoy an afternoon of hiking and exploring followed by an evening of conversation, relaxation and fun. The cost is $150 for Collective members and $200 for nonmembers or $345 for two non-members, with non-member registrants gaining Farnsworth and Collective memberships as part of the fee. The price is inclusive and space is limited; register by Friday, Aug. 24. For more information call 207-596-6256 or visit farnsworthmuseum.org/collective-membership-group.
