“Lovely hidden gem”

Bates College Museum of Art
Ranked #6 of 21 things to do in Lewiston
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Discovered this hidden gem on a rainy day just taking a walkabout on campus while visiting from nearby Poland, ME. They were working on the exhibit and not officially open but accommodated our request to peek and it was a wonderful exhibit, made even nicer by the informal, advance preview we were permitted to have.

We went for the exhibit, Starstruck: The Fine Art of Astrophotography, which is there 'til 12/15/12. Mighty interesting. Worth a trip.

But for its size and price (free !) it is worth your time. Sometimes the special exhibits are strange, sometimes they are darn good.

The art on display on this occasion was by senior students, and included acrylic paintings, photography, pottery, India ink drawings, and sculpture. The exhibit was well-lit and displayed, and some of was quite beautiful. The only improvements I could suggest would be a brochure about the artists whose work was displayed, and other pieces that might be available for purchase.

The museum is easy to access on the edge of the campus and despite its small size, is worth the visit.

Exhibits vary, check the website for upcoming exhibits and events before heading out.
