Mono Arts Council
MAC provides visual and performing arts education for K-12 students in-school, after-school, and during the summer. We ensure every student in Mono County has access to this VITAL part of their education. Arts education increases test scores and attendance. Making art supports good mental health and provides opportunities for social-emotional learning. Our adult programs, including Art & Wine, the gallery, and the Mammoth Celebrates the Arts Festival, help us raise money and awareness for arts education and gives local artists a place to showcase their talents.
What We Do
of Wild Onion Creations
Our Featured Artist is Heather Freeman. Nature inspires Heather to create − there is always something amazing to appreciate and photograph while enjoying the great outdoors. Having lived in the Eastern Sierra since 2006, Heather is still awed by the beauty of each season and the joy of capturing their fleeting gems like vibrant wildflowers, golden aspen leaves, or stormy clouds casting ominous shadows across the landscape. She handcrafts her photos into textile artwork like cozy pillows, ready-to-hang canvases, and luxurious art scarves to become special treasures for nature art appreciators and their families.
