WELCOME TO MACA!

On February 28, 1972, a group of fifty-two local residents created the McDowell Arts Council Association, Inc., ?a 501(c)(3) organization.

These folks were proud of their local artistic heritage and wanted to share this legacy while promoting local artists and enriching cultural life in McDowell County. Forty-six years later, the arts council continues to encourage local artists providing gallery space, a retail shop, teaching opportunities and theater space for the performing arts.

We promote inclusion, diversity, and accessibility in all programming here at MACA. The arts are for all people.
