The Tides Institute and Museum of Art (TIMA) serves as a cross border—United States / Canada—cultural institution and museum with broader interests along the northeast Atlantic coast and particular interests on the greater international Passamaquoddy region. TIMA investigates a wider view of the cultural ties between Maine, New England and the Atlantic Provinces, crossing disciplinary boundaries as well as geographical borders. With a focus on art, history, photography and architecture, TIMA fosters the creation of new works and in collecting existing works, developing printmaking, letterpress and digital arts facilities as part of this effort. TIMA is the only cultural institution in existence that is actively building a cross border (U.S./Canada) collection of art.
