The Arts Institute of Western Maine’s mission is to inspire, educate and entertain the community in Western Maine through involvement with arts events that appeal to all ages and interests. We are committed to affordability and community participation through memberships and sponsorships. We believe that diverse arts experiences and support of local artists give vitality to community life.
Since 1971, we have been bringing local and world-class live performances to Farmington, Maine. As an affiliate of the University of Maine at Farmington, we're proud to use the historic Nordica Auditorium as the venue for many of our concerts. As a way to further meet our mission of arts accessibility, we are pleased also to work with the Emery Community Arts Center and the local public schools to bring the performing arts to a wider audience in Western Maine.
