Monhegan Rush Hour

Monhegan Rush Hour

Tralice Bracy, curator of the Monhegan Island Museum, closes shop and heads for home on one of the most scenic commutes imaginable. Established in the lighthouse keeper’s quarters in 1965, the museum houses an impressive collection of art and memorabilia donated by the islanders, including paintings by George Bellows, Robert Henri, Rockwell Kent, and Edward Redfield. “It’s literally what people had in their attics,” says Bracy. “You’ll go into their cottages and see a Rockwell Kent personally autographed to them by the artist. There is art all over the island.”
