The Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm is a program of Maine Farmland Trust (MFT) that actively connects the creative worlds of farming, conservation and the arts.
The purpose of the Fiore Art Center is to stimulate and advance the dialogue between human and environment within the context of agriculture and today’s culture at large. We hope to instill passion for preservation through the arts, create awareness and build community.
We do this through exhibitions and public educational events, through research and application of ecologically sustainable farming practices and by hosting residencies for artists on a historic farm.
