On Sunday, May 18, the Farnsworth Art Museum will once again participate in the Association of Art Museum Directors’ Art Museum Day. Throughout the day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., admission to the downtown museum will be free to all. This free admission include the main museum, the Wyeth Center, and Julia’s Gallery, on the corner of Elm and Union streets, which will be opening a new exhibition that day.

This is the fifth year that the AAMD is uniting its membership to celebrate Art Museum Day. In 2013, approximately 169 member museums offered free admission, special programs and events in an international celebration of the importance of museums in our world.
