Join the Colby College Museum of Art on campus for a day of free art workshops, music, food, and interactive gallery experiences for people of all ages.

Create your own works of art with Lunder Institute for American Art resident fellows at the Art Tent, play with the Children’s Discovery Museum and Colby students, move to the vibes of live music, and fuel up with free tacos from Taco the Town, ice cream from Stone Fox Farm Creamery, and more.

Inside the museum, participate in a storytime the museum’s galleries, go on an exhibition tour, make custom buttons with the Waterville Public Library, drop by other activities offered by our community partners, and enjoy the collection and other art on view in this summer’s exhibitions:

  • Martha Diamond: Deep Time
  • Surface Tension: Etchings from the Colby College Museum of Art 1850 to Now
  • Eastman Johnson in Maine
  • Alex Katz: Repetitions
  • Painted: Our Bodies, Hearts, and Village

Or just sit back and enjoy time with friends and family.

Thanks to the support of Friends of Art, Community Day is entirely free and open to all.
