As long as humans have existed, we have found ways to create and tell our stories through art. Bringing cultures together, passing down techniques, and building movements of inspiration through all forms of art. When you visit Kennebunkport for a stay with us at The Nonantum Resort, discover the vast array of art that reflects our rich history and coastal culture!
Art Meets History
From the moment people figured out how to make markings on a cave wall, we have illustrated our history. During your Kennebunkport getaway, there are a few places where you can see the art and history of our area and America. The Ogunquit Museum of American Art is full of new and old pieces that will take you through time to see what the country looked through the eyes of those who lived during the various stages of America’s growth. From recent interpretations to works from artists who lived during the very birth of our Nation, this museum is full of intriguing finds. Brick Store Museum and Strawberry Banke Museum hone in on the historical aspect with exhibits of ancient artifacts as well as live performances to share the history interactively. Take a tour or check out one of their many events for an exceptional historical experience paired with artistic interpretations.
