Quimby Bails on Portland

"After merging her Portland-based artists' colony project with the Maine College of Art last month, Roxanne Quimby is now selling 769 Congress St., the brownstone where the artists' residency program operated for less than two years. It will be the third building in Portland's arts district that the co-founder of Burt's Bees has bought and sold related to her idea for an artists' colony. The 8,000-square-foot building, which she has restored and renovated, is on the market for $1,295,000."
