ABOUT

The Rufus Porter Museum of Art and Ingenuity promotes and preserves the life and legacy of Rufus Porter. Today, Porter is well recognized for his folk art, however, he was so much more than a painter. Porter was an inventor, a musician, and a founding publisher, editor, and writer for Scientific American, still in publication today.
