The famous come to Portland
It's not the Guggenheim, but Portland – the biggest city in Maine, and only a half hour drive away from the Captain Lord Mansion - and it has a rather impressive art museum.
The Portland Museum of Art
is a quaint, but progressive museum that hosts eye-popping exhibits, informative lectures and space for art to breathe.
From now until March 22 it is hosting just an amazing and fun exhibit, the likes of what you might find in the Smithsonian.
opened January 22 and features 268 photographs of mostly backstage shots from the world's most famous musicians.
There are never before seen sneak peeks at the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and Madonna, to name a few, in studio portraits as well as candid moments.
This is not an exhibition of paparazzi shots, but something much more rich, raw and respectful. This exhibit comes from one of the largest private collections in the world and is a treat to have here in Maine (one of the best vacation places in the world).
