August Greetings from Executive Director Dinah Minot 

Plein air artists dot the coastline as August is upon us. Muralists on ladders with brush in hand, artists in residence, and vacationing students dancing at open air concerts showcase our love of the Arts. Beyond lobsters and lighthouses, Creative Portland is proud to debut a one minute sizzle reel, highlighting the cultural life of Portland and featuring the city's diverse artistic talents across all genres of the arts. 
Tourists are roaming the streets in droves, so we want to give a shout out to local treasures this month, including Ashley Bryan at PMA and Maine Craft Portland's new shop & upcoming street festival. Browse sizzling galleries such as SPEEDWELL//projects, New System Exhibitions, Greenhut, ICA, and Able Baker. Check out The Apohadion, Batimbo United, the Kotzschmar Organ, Urban Farm Fermentory, Maine Outdoor Film Fest, Bayside Bowl's rooftop series and St. Lawrence Arts. And of course, the annual Bates Dance Festival, Portland Chamber Music Festival, and Bowdoin Music Festival, are all happening!
