Your support enables the Ashley Bryan Center to share the legacy of 96-year old artist, writer, poet, humanitarian and teacher, Ashley Bryan. In 2020, we are focusing on three projects: ensuring the life of the Storyteller Pavilion; collaborating with museums, libraries, and universities who have or would like to exhibit Ashley’s work with an emphasis on Maine institutions; continuing the distribution of Beautiful Blackbird. For more information about what we do with your support, visit our UPDATE page.

The Center would also appreciate help in locating items pertaining to Ashley Bryan’s life and work, including, but not limited to, paintings, drawings, illustrations, posters, prints, letters, poems and manuscripts. Digital images of any of these items would be most helpful to us and the Kislak Center in futhering our mission.

If you do have work of Ashley’s you might be interested in loaning or donating, under your name, to an interested museum, please let us know so that we might enable a connection.

If you would like more information about a donation to a specific project or would like to discuss an item for placement:
