Robert Indiana’s “EAT” sculpture installed at the Farnsworth

June 18th will be the start of the Maine in America celebration in Rockland & Rockport Maine.  This ten day festival celebrates Maine’s role in American art.  As part of the festivities here in Rockland the Farnsworth Art Museum & Wyeth Center has just installed a scultpture by artist Robert Indiana entitled “EAT.”  This sculpture was created for the 1964 Worlds Fair.  An interesting tidbit was the the sculpture only stayed up for one week as people lined up by the dozens thinking the sculpture would lead them to food!!  Please click here for all the details during this ten day extravaganza.  It will be a very exciting time to be in Midcoast Maine!!  I will post photos once the sculpture is fully installed and lit up in all its glory!3607207032_d25346aecd
