Where to Draw the Line: The Maine Drawing Project is a statewide visual arts initiative, developed by the Maine Curators Group, that represents a unique collaboration between Maine's arts organizations. As part of the Maine Drawing Project, museums and galleries across Maine will offer exhibitions that focus on the process of drawing and how artists use it as a vehicle for creating diverse forms of visual expression.  These exhibitions, scheduled throughout the 2011 calendar year, feature work by artists from Maine and around the world,including images drawn directly onto gallery walls, hand-traced computer algorithms, and sketches of the Iraq war. They present an array of contemporary and historical artworks that come from the prestigious collections of Maine's museums and galleries.  Join us and experience the richness of the drawing process and the media it encompasses.
