Abstract

The Maine College of Art's Porteous building is scheduled to open January 16, and many are touting it as the savior of Portland's downtown. The $10.8-million renovation of the building is a big thing for MECA, for Congress Street merchants and for City Hall and its various agencies, which are hoping it will become the cornerstone of the city's proposed arts district. Some observers feel it is less than reasonable to expect that a school the size of MECA can pack an economic punch. Details, related piece on MECA's capital campaign for the renovation.
