Center for Maine Contemporary Art

Midcoast Maine

The CMCA's fabulous home is a clever, glass-enclosed space with a sawtooth roofline, designed by Toshiko Mori. The digs are perfect for featuring exhibitions of work by artists (both established and emerging) connected with the state of Maine, such as Alex Katz and Jonathan Borofsky. Arts events – lectures, lessons etc – kick off on a regular basis.
