Visions of Inclusion

OUT Maine has partnered with Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) in Rockland and Erickson Fields in Rockport to bring LGBTQ+ art and writing to Midcoast Maine during Pride Month (June).

The theme for the art and writing exhibitions follows Rockland Main Street’s “Visions of Inclusion.” According to Rockland Main Street “in order to have a resilient community, it is integral that all identities are included, celebrated, and given a platform to shape our future…expressing what it means to be a welcoming community and depicting one’s visions for the future.”

The CMCA and Erickson Fields provide space for youth of all ages (22 and under) to display their art, photography, and writing to share their own Visions of Inclusion with Midcoast Maine during the month of June.

The 2021 show has wrapped up but you can still see the artwork in our Virtual Gallery.
