Holocaust and Human Rights Center and Colby College Museum Trip

November 12, 2019

Join us for a field trip to the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine in Augusta followed by a visit to the Colby College Museum of Art. Call 288-9500 or email learn@acadiaseniorcollege.org to sign up.

We have chartered a coach bus for a relaxing ride to Augusta where Shenna Bellows will provide an introduction and tour of the main exhibits at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center in Augusta. Following the tour, choose between an 80-minute film weaving the stories of Holocaust survivors who came to Maine after WWII with the history of the Holocaust, or one of several workshops.

The Center will provide a sandwich and salad buffet.

After lunch we will leave for the Colby College Museum of Art where Julia Gray will meet us for a tour of the "Wíwənikan…the beauty we carry" exhibition of contemporary art of the First Nations people of what is now Maine and Maritime Canada. Julia, an independent consultant, served as Project Manager for the exhibit, is currently the Transition Director at the Abbe Museum, and was previously Director of Collections & Research at the Abbe.


We will return to MDI in the late afternoon.

Cost for the trip is $50 per person which includes bus transportation and lunch. Admission to both museums is free.
