ROCKLAND, Maine – A local documentary film about the Farnsworth Museum shown Saturday gave a personal picture of the museum’s founders and principals, and of its place in the city and the art world.
The Farnsworth Art Museum celebrated its 60th birthday Friday and Saturday with tours at the museum and a commendation and special documentary film Saturday at the Strand Theater.
