Eastport, ME is the easternmost city in the United States. The Tides Institute and Museum of Art (TIMA) is a previous ArtPlace grantee, whose work has contributed to the revitalization of the town, which, to date, has included the opening of a candy store, the imminent opening of a pharmacy, the return of small cruise ships docking in town, the creation of a new downtown welcome center, and the development of a downtown breakwater pier. TIMA proposes adding a third building to its campus; developing an international artist exchange program that builds on its location adjacent to the Canadian border; and leading a community mapping project that will present Eastport’s cultural and natural assets
