The Ski Museum of Maine, which recently mounted a show in the Camden Public Library’s Picker Room gallery, was awarded a grant from the Maine Community Foundation to support the creation and installation of the newest exhibit in the museum, “Maine Olympians – From the Pine Tree State to the World Stage.”

The official unveiling of this exhibit will take place Friday, Dec. 28, at 6 p.m. at museum, 256 Main St. A reception will follow and refreshments will be served.

This exhibit will present the stories of Maine’s participants in each of the Winter Olympics from 1948 to the present day. It portrays these remarkable individuals and explores the reasons that Maine is home to so many outstanding Nordic and alpine skiers, jumpers and snowboarders. The exhibit will remain in place for the upcoming year.

The Ski Museum of Maine is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization established in 1995 to celebrate, preserve and share Maine’s ski history and heritage. The museum exhibits artifacts, photographs, artworks and documents at its location in Kingfield. For more information, visit
