Archives and museums in northern Maine collaborated on an exhibition that brought together five Acadian archives and historical museums, sixteen artists and five exhibition venues across the geographic territory of Acadian communities. The exhibition l’Acadie mythique is a project of Saint Mary's University Art Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It consists of contemporary artworks created in response to historical objects and documents found in collections of the participating archives. Each individual artist has selected an object or objects to interpret in the medium of their choice. Included in the exhibit were charcoal drawings by Therese L. Provenzano, the Adjunct Visual Arts Instructor at UMFK. The exhibition was displayed from June 14-September 13th, 2004 in the Acadian Archives at the University of Maine at Fort Kent.
