The Farnsworth Art Museum celebrates Robert Indiana’s Love exhibit with free admission

Cheap Dates: Free love! (Get your mind out of the gutter)

Mon, 02/10/2014 - 2:15pm

    ROCKLAND—Love means... never having to pay admission. (That agonized groan you hear is Erich Segal rolling in his grave for butchering his famous quote. Sorry.) But I’m trying to keep the mood light, for this is either the week of the black, shriveled death-eating stare if you hate Valentine’s Day or else it’s the week of blissful eternal sighs if can’t wait for this time of year. Either way, the Farnsworth has got a freebie for you and our Cheap Dates are all about the freebies.

    The Farnsworth Art Museum invites everyone to join them on Saturday, February 15 from 4-7 p.m. to honor Celebrating Love!, the museum's special Robert Indiana exhibition on display only from February 14 through March 16. Together we will celebrate fifty years of this iconic image... as well as Midcoast Maine's creative community.

    This event is free to all. Reservations are appreciated. Please call membership at 207-596-6256 or email

    So grab a pal or a paramour and get in on this free Love! deal on Saturday. Now, you know what it’s all about, you and Erich Segal can get together and blast me for the story title, too.
