Maine Sunday Telegram. Art review: Exhibit explores Thoreau’s relationship with Maine, November 12, 2017

By Daniel Kany 

And yet, as artist Dan Mills reveals, Thoreau’s traipsings through Maine comprised merely a bit of the common Wabanaki paths in what was to become an American state about 200 years ago.

But Mills’ images go off like a bomb. The small-handed notion is to imagine Mills’ works take down Thoreau, but they don’t: Mills forces us to want the Wabanaki expertise. And this means everything. We learn from him something was never at our fingertips before.
