CMCA Annual Fund

keep us moving forward by making a contribution today

“CMCA’s new home…captures the generous forward-looking spirit of a living institution whose adventurous mission promises to enrich the cultural life of its city and region for decades to come.”

—Henry N. Cobb, founding partner, Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

We all love Maine.

We love the light and the land that has inspired so many great artists. We love the excitement of thinking about Maine’s future, fresh with entrepreneurship, invention and surprise—this generation and the next living and thriving in this beautiful place.

For over six decades, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art has shared this vision by exhibiting and supporting the very best of the future of Maine art.

The impact is resonating.

With our small staff, dedicated board, and firm belief in the power of art, so much has been accomplished. Our new building is a spectacular success in just the few months it has been open. Membership has doubled since June. Attendance has increased tenfold from our previous home and is on track to fulfill and even surpass the expected 35,000 visitors in our inaugural year.

Importantly, our new home is helping us achieve even more beyond attendance. It offers exceptional exhibition space to showcase contemporary art that can hold its own anywhere in the world. The new ArtLab classroom is expanding our ability to reach and teach new audiences, now on a year-round basis.

In sum, our new home is positioning CMCA as an economic and cultural catalyst for all of Maine.

A future CMCA is part of.

We love Maine, as we know you do. We admire the way Maine builds on its traditions of craftsmanship, hard work, and ingenuity, combined with its natural beauty, to make something unique and inspirational. We share this resourcefulness and sense of place. We believe in a vibrant future for Maine.

Please help move us forward by making a contribution today.

With great appreciation and thanks,

Suzette McAvoy
