Your Support Makes Art Possible

We need your help to ensure everyone has access to the arts in Mono County. Our goal is to chart a new funding course to augment the grants we receive and the revenue from our annual events.


Our Goal for 2023: 

To establish key programs, support some of our most beloved programs, and build a strong foundation for the future of the arts in Mono County 

K-12 Arts Education

With MAC, every school-aged child in Mono County has access to arts education curriculum and opportunities for all students. Without MAC, there is almost no K-12 arts education.

Arts for our Community

For over 50 years, MAC has provided opportunities to explore, enjoy and engage in the arts. We host arts and music festivals for the residents and visitors of Mono County. We present both arts festivals and adult arts education opportunities for more than 12,000 adults throughout the year.

A platform for Art

MAC provides platforms and exposure for established and emerging artists. Our gallery represents over 50 local and regional artists. We connect our artists with patrons through the gallery, classes, and festivals.
