Maine is a land full of beauty that inspires, and our culture is deeply rooted in the creative process – from finding ways to turn the once frowned-upon lobster into the state icon, to building a perfect boat. Arts and culture thrive in every region, and we celebrate our heritage and craft making year-round.

Maine Arts & Museums

Portland Museum of Art For hundreds of years, artists have found their muse in Maine. Artist colonies and visual-arts schools maintain a year-round buzz of creativity, making the arts part of the fabric of everyday life. To see how the state has inspired both Maine artists and those from away, visit the nine museums that comprise the Maine Art Museum Trail. Beloved painters like Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, Robert Indiana and Louise Nevelson created many masterpieces here and the museums’ collections are splendid.

Maine Culture

You’ll find fairs and festivals celebrating everything from Native American, Greek and Swedish heritage to Maine food icons like lobster and wild blueberries.
