History or CMCA
In 1952, a group of artists came together in Rockport, Maine, to put on a small summer art exhibition. Originally called Maine Coast Artists, their initiative evolved over the next fifty years to become the Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), the state’s leading nonprofit institution dedicated to advancing contemporary art through exhibitions and educational programs.
