Our most recent projects have included a major renovation of the MAC Auditorium (state-of-the-art lighting, audio/visual equipment, acoustical shells, improved staging, a band new maple floor, & more), state-of-the-art lighting in MAC’s visual arts studios, sound-proofing a music studio, and more.

Long range projects currently underway include improving the dance studio, putting finishing touches on the auditorium to bring more performing arts into the community, increasing need-based scholarship opportunities, and developing a technology and arts learning lab.While MAC is a Portland Parks & Recreation facility, budget limitations must prioritize life, health, and safety issues. By supporting MACA, improvements to a one-hundred-year-old building can be leveraged, ensuring an environment that is not only safe, but optimized for creative learning that attracts students of all ages and teaching artists of high caliber from throughout the region.
