In 2010, Colby College received a bequest from Bernard Langlais’s widow, Helen Friend Langlais, of thousands of her husband’s artworks and the couple’s 90-acre property in Cushing, Maine. Kohler Foundation, Inc. of Wisconsin purchased the property from Colby, who in turn gifted the Foundation over 2,900 artworks by Langlais. A private foundation that funds preservation initiatives centered on art environments and collections, Kohler undertook the monumental task of conserving Langlais’s works and placing them in non-profit institutions in Maine and beyond. Over fifty institutions in more than forty Maine communities now hold artworks by Langlais.
