Celebrating Maine's Role in American Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum offers a nationally recognized collection of works from many of America's greatest artists. With 20,000 square feet of gallery space and over 15,000 works in the collection, there is always something new on view at the Farnsworth. The museum has one of the largest collections of works by sculptor Louise Nevelson. Its Wyeth Center features works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth. The Farnsworth's library is also housed in its Rockland, ME, campus. Two historic buildings, the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House, and Julia's Gallery for Young Artists complete the museum complex.

Had no idea that this was the home of Andrew Wyeth and family when I arrived. Was great to see more of this artwork than the "famous" pieces.

Wyeth spent summers in nearby Cushing, Maine where he painted many beautiful scenes, including "Christina's World."

Beth just posted, "Olsen House in Camden is a must see” Unfortunately, the Olson House (watch the spelling) is in Cushing, Maine which is in the opposite direction from Camden. Can this post be fixed?
