Maine + Jewish

Two Centuries

September 21, 2018 - October 25, 2018 | 9:00am - 5:00pm | Maine State Museum

Supported by a Maine Humanities Council Major Grant

The Maine State Museum’s newest exhibition, Maine + Jewish: Two Centuries, presents the experiences of one of Maine’s most enduring communities, from 19th-century immigrants to more recent residents and summer visitors. It has been organized by guest curator Amy E. Waterman of Brunswick, supported by museum staff, an advisory committee of scholars and community members, and a partnership with Colby College’s Center for Small Town Jewish Life.


Our Mini Grants support for a variety of larger humanities projects such as exhibits, conferences, films, and other initiatives.
