Monhegan Deathwatch: Centennarian to be slain by researchers with court order

Bellowing "move your easels!" University of Maine's DeepCwind engineering teams are moving to take down America's oldest art colony, the famed painters' isle Monhegan, a dozen miles off Maine's Midcoast. The Island's artifice-free natural scenic assets off its southern rim at Lobster Cove were ordered destroyed to make way for an experimental deepwater wind power test center, following a Superior Court denial of all appeals.

In protest of the imminent desecration, dozens of pieces of artwork donated by visiting artists who have had "Monhegan periods" over the decades will be sacrificed at a fiery Lobster Cove funeral in early August.
