Eastport Arts Center (EAC) 36 Washington Street, Eastport

Artists Ellen Nicholas and Kristine Gordon Moore have been hard at work creating their sketches for a proposed mural in the Eastport Arts Center lobby. The artists are taking their inspiration from a community survey that asked respondents about the role of the arts in their lives.

The project, which is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, will hold a reception and viewing of the sketches on Saturday, May 28 at 7:00 pm. During that time, a short documentary featuring the artists will also premiere, and EAC’s Creative Development Coordinator, Mark Macey, will moderate a discussion on the arts and inclusivity.
