Who We Are / MAC Vision
Founded in 1999 by an act of the Mattoon City Council,
the Mattoon Arts Council supports, develops, facilitates
and promotes high-quality, affordable arts programs and activities for people of all ages. The MAC operates out of
the Tourism & Arts office in the Mattoon Depot and presents programming in the Depot's Lone Elm Room.
The Mattoon Arts Council envisions a vibrant, creative community where arts activities are frequent and evident, where members of the community have opportunities to experience and engage in the arts direct and where arts activities are appreciated as an asset for the community and economic development.
As a community organization, we believe:
The Mattoon Arts Council meets at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at the tourism and arts office in the Mattoon Depot.
