The Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland has voluntarily closed for the month of January out of an abundance of caution for its staff, volunteers and visitors. The goal of the closure is to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

In a news release, CMCA Executive Director Suzette McAvoy said, “We have had no detected cases of COVID-19 associated with CMCA, but with the uptick of cases in Knox County and the expected surge following the holidays, we have decided to close our galleries to the public as a cautionary measure.”

Online events continue, including a virtual tour of the Biennial exhibition with curatorial staff, hands-on art making led by ArtLab educators and live streamed Artist Toolbox talks and workshops.
