The Art Exhibit at Mechanics Hall

Our Current Ehibit

Artist Ellen Babcock created a beautiful collection banners representing a variety of trades comprising the Maine Charitable Mechanics Association membership—from Barrel Makers, to Healers, to Hackers.  This project references the history of the Mechanics whose members last held a parade of trade banners in 1841.  Over 150 years later, we marched these banners from Mechanics Hall to Monument Square and back during the First Friday of Labor Day weekend in September 2016.
