“It’s always been my philosophy to try to make art out of the everyday and ordinary… it never occurred to me to leave home to make art.” — Sally Mann
In response to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders and local closings, the Maine Museum of Photographic Arts in Portland began creating the online series MMPA Antidote, which includes photographic artwork, audio interviews, and artist statements and reflections from Maine artists, aimed to serve as inspiration during times of isolation.
Joel R. Ferris, a donor who helped launch MMPA, says, “On Fridays after work, I pour a glass of wine and look and read the site and pretend I’m on Portland’s First Friday art walk.”
A new issue of MMPA Antidote is available online at www.mainemuseumofphotographicarts.org.
