Vincent Hartgen


Vincent Hartgen was a legendary figure and pioneer in the development of the visual arts in Maine. As an artist, Hartgen exhibited at the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design, the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the De Cordova Museum, and the Chase Gallery in New York, among many other venues. His work is in major public and private collections. Perhaps more importantly, in 1946 Hartgen developed the visual arts program at the University of Maine, Orono. Soon after, Hartgen was the director and curator of the University's Art Gallery. Hartgen was a trustee of the Haystack School, the commissioner of Maine State Commission of Arts & Humanities, and the recipient of numerous awards including the University of Maine Alumni Association's Black Bear Award, the University of Maine Distinguished Professor Award, and the Arts and the Humanities Governor's Art Award.
