About the McLean County Arts Center
Our Mission Statement: "We encourage and promote the appreciation, study, cultivation, development, and practice of the Arts in McLean County."
An independent 501(C)3 non-profit organization, we are the arts agency for McLean County. The Town of Normal granted official agency designation in 1991, and by the City of Bloomington, as well as McLean County in 1992.
The MCAC presents approximately twelve exhibitions yearly, including the annual Holiday Treasures exhibition and the annual Amateur Competition and Exhibition which for over 80 years has showcased the best amateur artists from the region. MCAC also offers art classes, artist lectures, art workshops for youth and adults and associated performing and literary arts presentations. The community is also offered opportunities to purchase artwork through the Sales Gallery. MCAC facilitates two arts festivals annually, Spring Bloom Arts Festival in March at Illinois State University's Bone Student Center and Sugar Creek Arts Festival in July at Uptown Normal.
