The Milaca Arts Center (MAC) is run by the Milaca Fine Arts Council (MFAC) a non-profit organization that has been producing art events in the Milaca area since 2005. The first Milaca Arts Center opened in 2008 in what was then the old Lines Law Office on Central Avenue in Milaca. We held many art shows, musical events, and book readings in that quaint space. The first MAC closed in 2009 due to the expansion of the grocery store. Without any space, MFAC continued to produce events in the area like Music in the Park, the Spring Student Art Show, and House Concerts. We opened the current Milaca Arts Center in 2012. We are located at 170 2nd Ave. SW in Milaca. This building is owned by the city and is a shared space with the Milaca Senior Center (MSC).

MFAC Vision:

We envision Milaca

as a thriving arts community

and an essential arts destination.



   "When I say artist I

mean the one who is building things...

some with a

brush - some with a

shovel - some

choose a pen."

- Jackson Pollock
