About the Artist
The Davistown Museum is a regional history, tool and art museum in the hill country of central coastal Maine. The missions of the Museum are: To recover, display and interpret the hand tools of Maine and New England?s maritime culture.
To serve as a clearinghouse for information on the history of hand tools and their role in the early industries and technologies of Maine and New England.
To increase community awareness of and access to information on local, regional, Native American and environmental history.
To provide a forum for contemporary Maine artists to exhibit and sell their work, in an environment that is an ongoing installation of conceptual, assemblage, abstract and traditional art in juxtaposition with the exhibition of tools as both historical and sculpture objects.
The Museum offers a myriad of actual and virtual opportunities to experience Maine history through its exhibitions and website. It includes an extensive collection of eighteenth and nineteenth century tools, an annual art exhibition featuring contemporary Maine artists, a library and extensive online resources to help visitors learn about tools and regional, state and Native American history. The Museum maintains an outdoor garden of flowers and contemporary Maine sculpture adjacent to its Hulls Cove office.
