Great News!

Please help us to share a HUGE applause for our local Green Curtains team!

Thank you to the entire Green Curtain group members and Board of Directors team for your commitment to advancing the arts in our community. The MACK was recently selected to receive $3,000 in performance-raised funding as a Non-Profit Organization to support our Arts in Basic Curriculum program. This program is designed to advance the specific arts goals and objectives of the McCormick County School District through a partnership with the MACK. This contribution will allow the MACK to have the flexibility to support the most pressing arts needs and continue our work directly with school administrators.
This is a particularly exciting time as a plan to advance the Drama Club is now a priority of the school district. We were personally invited to watch the first student-driven play performed by McCormick Elementary Students and were thrilled to see 20 children enjoy their experience. They have a dedicated instructor who is committed to using drama to address mental health needs for our youngest community members. The joy that the children showed was heartwarming! Thank you for your generous support.

Call to Action!

MACK to receive County support for Rehabilitation Project

The MACK will receive $50,000 in funding made available through the American Rescue Plan Act. We wish to publicly express our gratitude and appreciation for the support from the McCormick County Council and administration team. These funds will help to advance our building project and invest in improved HVAC and accessibility.

We wish to also express our appreciation for the release of the allocated funding to the MACK through the Capital Sales Tax. This amount, $50,739, will help to defray the costs of Life Safety Renovations as required.

The McCormick Arts Council staff, Board of Directors, and membership are eager to return to full services and appreciate essential municipal support in the rehabilitation project of the McCormick Arts Council’s home, the historic Keturah Hotel.
