**Maine's Lithographic Landscapes can be viewed online at: https://www.bowdoin.edu/art-museum/catalogues/maine-lithographs/ **
This exhibition explores the history of Maine town and city views published during the first fifty years of statehood through major lithographs and several related paintings. These works, selected by Earle Shettleworth Jr. H'08, Maine State Historian, provide insights into how these growing centers of commerce and industry viewed themselves and wished to be viewed by others.

**Exhibit available online at: https://sca.bowdoin.edu/state-of-maine/ **
Maine’s complicated road to statehood culminated on March 15, 1820, when it became the twenty-third state. Admitted as a free state in a bargain to allow slavery’s extension to Missouri, Maine’s early years were shaped by national party politics, tension between farmers and merchants, and competing visions of who constituted the people of Maine. The State of Maine uses rare books, political tracts, maps, and other materials to explore the unexpected and familiar narratives that propelled statehood, and considers Bowdoin’s unique role in that journey.
