Emily Muir

Emily Muir moved to Stonington, Maine in 1939 with her sculptor husband, William Muir, whom she had met at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Ms. Muir was the first woman to serve on President Dwight D. Eisenhower's National Commission on Fine Arts, and she was later appointed to the advisory committee for the Kennedy Center for the performing Arts by President Richard Nixon.

Her oil painting, On Crockett Point  (a detail of which is shown at the top of this page), was acquired by the University of Maine Museum of Art.
