Your Gift Makes A Difference


MAC offers arts education for nearly 3,000 children and adults annually in our studios on the Mystic River.  Our art exhibitions provide artists of all levels and styles the opportunity to show their work in a museum-quality setting.  MAC exhibited nearly 1,200 pieces of local and regional art in 2013.


Cultural events at MAC broaden the arts experience.  Events such as Langston Hughes Poetry Reading, Art After Dark, MIX and Art In the Evening stimulate discussion and spark connections.  MAC welcomed over 19,500 visitors last year.


MAC’s programming extends into the community with educational outreach connecting art with school curricula.  MAC instructors travel to classrooms or teach onsite in our galleries and studios.  We worked with over 2,700 students in 2013 from 24 area schools.  Our Young At Art (YAA) Exhibition allows children from the area, 18 and under, to have a piece of art displayed in our gallery.  In 2014, YAA exhibited 954 individual and 19 group entries.
