What objects tell Maine's story?

Maine Indian Basketry exhibit

Portland Museum of Art is asking everyone with a love of Maine to share the objects that help tell this state’s stories. What embodies Maine to you? Is it something that speaks to our cultures, natural resources, or industries; a work of art, poem, or book; a family heirloom or keepsake?

The objects you share with us could become part of a special PMA exhibition celebrating 200 years of Maine statehood.

It’s easy to contribute: just fill out the PMA form and tell them why the objects represent Maine to you.
