After five years of planning and coordinating, the Community Resource Center ope
After five years of planning and coordinating, the Community Resource Center opened at the corner of Preble and Portland streets in November 1993. The center is now home to a 15-by-45-foot mural, with images of dolphins, a tree, a castle and enormous hands. A grant from the Maine Arts Commission allowed the center to hire two professional mural artists to direct the project, but it was the people who use the center who did the work, and the center's writers' group wrote the poetry that will be added to the mural.
