Rockland, ME, April 10, 2020 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland will host its April Vacation Week ArtLabs via a new video series while its doors are closed to the public in response to COVID-19.
“I’m incredibly proud of how quickly CMCA staff has adapted to the current environment and is responding to the expressed needs of our audience,” said CMCA Director Suzette McAvoy. “They have been creating and delivering online content in service of artists, students, educators, and art lovers of all ages since our physical closure in mid March. Now, more than ever, our online audience is important in fostering a sense of community and engagement.”
Each afternoon at 2pm during April Vacation Week, April 20–23, new videos of fun, hands-on activities led by ArtLab educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino will be posted to cmcanow.org and facebook.com/cmcanow. Participants are invited to engage in real time or revisit the videos at their convenience. A list of materials to be used in the workshops will be made available in advance on CMCA’s website and Facebook page.
ArtLab Vacation Week is made possible by the support of Camden National Bank, Fisher Charitable Foundation, Margaret E. Burnham Trust, Mattina R. Proctor Foundation, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust, Wells Fargo, and individual donors.
CMCA is a contemporary arts institution presenting year-round exhibitions, engaging events, and educational programs for all ages.
