Maine College of Art & Design’s annual COLLECT sale is open. Featuring artwork by alumni, faculty, current students, staff, and friends of the college, this is an opportunity to support local artists and the school’s scholarship fund. Browse and purchase online at or in person at the 522 Congress Street, Portland.
