NEWS + HAPPENINGS AT CMCA

It may be cold and grey outside, but things are really warming up inside the new CMCA in Rockland. Between now and our grand opening in late June, we are reaching out to all of you for support during this final stretch of our capital campaign.

Imagine the possibilities!


Everyone Loves Bruce

SO LET’S NAME A GALLERY AFTER HIM!

Curator, collector, champion of art and artists extraordinaire, Bruce Brown has devoted much of his life to supporting and shaping the cultural life of Maine.

HERE’S OUR CHANCE TO SHOW BRUCE JUST HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE HIM.

Help us raise the matching funds necessary to name the central gallery at the new CMCA – THE BRUCE BROWN GALLERY. Thanks to a number of generous donors, your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000.
