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 Grants, free Gazebo Summer Concerts, and Christmas Card Lane, Children’s Lantern Parade, and Kris Kringle Market. We welcome volunteers and new members!




Madison Arts Council Board of Directors are instrumental in the planning, implementation, and growth of arts in our city. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our members and the dedication each has to the goals of MAC. If you are interested in serving on the MAC Board, and are passionate about the arts, please contact us at info@artsmadison.org to learn more about our organization and future opportunities.
