Brightly colored and statuesque, PEOPLE LIKE US, the ornate sculpture by artist Jeffrey Gibson, commands our attention—it is thought-provoking, welcoming, meticulous, and theatrical. It recalls the state of Maine’s Indigenous people and their rich histories, and represents the growing diversity of the PMA’s contemporary art collection.
