Rockland, Maine, November 11, 2016 – The Center for Maine Contemporary Art is again offering its popular lecture series, “Who Do You Love?,” in conjunction with this year’s Biennial Exhibition.
The first edition of the series will take place on Sunday, November 20, at 4 pm, and feature four Biennial artists: Phoebe Adams (Phippsburg, ME), Lynn Duryea (Deer Isle, ME and South Portland, ME), Kayla Mohammadi (Walpole, ME and Boston, MA), and Kate Russo (Portland, ME and London, England).
Following the format of the series, in which artists share the artistic loves of their lives, each artist will present slides of three works of art by other artists that they love, sharing why these works are important to them, and how they have inspired their own work. A question and answer period will follow the presentations.
The next edition in the “Who Do You Love?” series will take place at 4 pm on Sunday, January 22, featuring four additional Biennial artists. The “Who Do You Love?” lecture series is free with admission.
