On Sunday, May 19, the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland will open an exhibition of student works titled “Stories of the Land and Its People.” The exhibition, which celebrates the work of over 155 local elementary and middle school students who took part in the “Stories” program, will be on display 

in the museum’s James Gallery through October 27. The opening celebration will begin at the Strand Theatre in Rockland at 1 p.m., and will continue throughout the museum until 5 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free and open to all. “Stories of the Land and Its People” is a year-long arts-integration initiative in which the Farnsworth facilitates in-depth partnerships with local schools, artists and community members to connect the arts to curricular learning standards. The program explores student and teacher curiosity through art, inquiry, creativity and interactive learning experiences. It provides professional development opportunities for teachers and artists, free online resources for all educators, private arts-integration consultations, and various multivisit arts-integration programs.
