The Davistown Museum is a regional tool, art, and history museum with two physical locations in Maine and an extensive website. The Museum and the website provide detailed information on the history of ferrous metallurgy, edge tool manufacturing, the Wooden Age of maritime New England, and the Classic period of American toolmaking that accompanied the advent of the Industrial Revolution. The main Museum complex, including exhibitions, galleries, libraries, and the visitors’ center, is located in Liberty Village, while the office and sculpture gardens are in Hulls Cove (Bar Harbor). Museum exhibitions include The Art of the Edge Tool, the Annual Art Exhibition, an extensive collection of assemblage art, and work by members of the Maine Artists Guild.
two pieces of my work to the collection for one year, alongside the work of Louise Nevelson, William Glackens, Milton Avery, Edgar Degas, Jessica Strauss, Kim Bernard and Squidge Liljeblad Davis. Both Mr. Brack and the Davistown Museum are worth a visit.
