Workneh, May, Secord, and Bessire.


The Portland Museum of Art in Maine announced that Nat May, the independent curator tapped earlier this year to helm the 2018 PMA Biennial, has hired three co-curators. Those new team members are:

  • Theresa Secord, the founder of the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance
  • Sarah Workneh, the co-director of Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture
  • Mark Bessire, the Judy and director of the PMA

Nay has said that the upcoming biennial will work to highlight art and artists that have a connection to Maine culture who have not previously been shown at the PMA.
