A foundation has increased its gift to a Maine university to help create a new arts center in the state’s largest city.

The University of Southern Maine said Tuesday the Crewe Foundation has given an additional $1 million toward the construction of a new Center for the Arts on the public university’s Portland campus.

The university says that brings the foundation’s total gift toward the project to $6 million.
