WilliamWegmanWilliam Wegman, acclaimed photographer, artist, writer and videographer, will be the keynote speaker at the University of Maine at Farmington’s upcoming graduation. The commencement will take place on the UMF campus on Saturday, May 18, at an outdoor ceremony. Wegman is noted by the New York Times as “one of the most important artists to emerge from the heady experiments of the 1970s.” He is best known for the photographs and videos of his beloved Weimaraner dogs that have captured the appreciation and affection of a broad audience. UMF President Kathryn A. Foster said in a recent Morning Sentinel article, “We are thrilled and excited to have him. The arts matter here and we felt that Wegman, with his breadth of work in the arts, was a wonderful way to demonstrate that commitment.”
