View of northern corner of High Street and Spring Street, outside the Portland Museum of Art, from west. House at 99 High Street, in background. High Street is at right.

Bradford Brown (at right), director of the Museum, and Michael Ricci prepare for an outdoor exhibit of paintings. The event was in cooperation with Maine's Millionth Visitor Celebration. The paintings, by 58 artists, were mounted on the Museum's fence; it was the first-ever outdoor exhibit by the Museum.

(See this link for a view from the parade during the city-wide event in 1956 for the Millionth Visitor, and this link for the 1957 Millionth Visitor event, in front of Benoit's department store.)
