The purpose and vision of the Madison Arts Council is to develop a culture and enrich the quality of life for Madison City through various forms of dance, music, theatre, and visual art. Through programs, advocacy and partnership with our community, we have one mission: to tap into the senses.
In June 2001, a group of arts-minded Madison residents came together to discuss the possibility of an arts council for their city. After many meetings and much discussion, the Madison Arts Council was born. In the Spring of 2002, The Madison Arts Council officially became a not-for-profit 501 (c)3 organization.
Today the Madison Arts Council (MAC) continues to be driven by a group of volunteers dedicated to the production, advocacy, and education of art in our area.
Community support is also vital to the creation and continuation of programs such as Arts in Education, free Gazebo Summer Concerts, and SPACES sculpture trail. We welcome volunteers and new members daily!
We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at “347″, a business located next door to Bruegger’s Cafe, and directly across from Kroger, on Hughes Rd. in Madison.
Please feel free to stop by and learn more.
