Local Artists “Paint the City” for the University of Maine Museum of Art 

The University of Maine Museum of Art sent people all around Bangor on Saturday.The event encourages people of all ages and skill level to participate. Artists have six hours to paint anything they want in Bangor and return their artwork to the museum.The public then bid on the local artwork during a silent auction. Organizers enjoy seeing people come out to paint the city.Half the proceeds of the auction go back to the artist and the other half benefits the museum and the Bangor Art Society.
