Not that you should try this at home. Without the paintings in front of you, it could be dull.
It's mainly if you're interested in hearing what the museum's telephone tour is like. Call that number and press #2 for the painting, "The Artist's Studio in an Afternoon Fog, 1894," #6 for the painting, "The Lifeline." And so on.But, really, as I said, for this to be worthwhile, you really should be standing in front of the paintings as museum personnel describe them. I just thought that it was interesting that the museum has found a way to bypass audio headsets and fees by having patrons use their own personal tour devices.
Perhaps other museums do this as well and I'm late to this game?
The exhibition features paintings, etchings and watercolors by Homer, the great American artist who painted many maritime scenes, and lived and painted in Maine in his later years. I continued to call that number for explanations throughout my visit.
