The Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland will host an exhibition celebrating 13 Women of Vision whose contributions to art and culture earned them recognition as Farnsworth Maine in America honorees. The exhibit will be on display in the Rothschild Gallery from Saturday, April 17, through January 2, 2022. The Maine in America award is presented annually to an individual or group who has made an outstanding contribution to the arts and culture of Maine.

The Women of Vision will be honored in celebrations at the museum, throughout the midcoast and online from May through October. An award ceremony at the museum is planned for July.

The honorees are photographer Berenice Abbott; businesswoman Linda Bean; painter Katherine Bradford; philanthropist Edith Dixon; museum founder Lucy Farnsworth; photographer Cig Harvey; poet Edna St. Vincent Millay; sculptor Louise Nevelson; philanthropist Elizabeth Noyce; basket maker and Passamaquoddy civic leader Molly Neptune Parker; women’s advocate and philanthropist Maurine Rothschild; arts and education champion Phyllis Wyeth; and artist Marguerite Zorach.

The Farnsworth’s tribute was inspired by Lucy Copeland Farnsworth, the museum’s founder.

The complete Women of Vision programming will be available on the museum website April 16. For more information, visit
