Celebrating 33 years of messy and slightly dangerous creativity in the Pikes Peak region, the Manitou Art Center is your place for art exhibits, studios, makerspaces, workspaces, and community. This complex collection of tools, space, books, people, and opportunities is here for all of us. Check out the MAC!
Whether you learn by reading, listening, doing, training, trial-and-error, classes, or some combination of the above, you have all those options at your fingertips through the Manitou Art Center and our partnership with the Manitou Springs Library. Can’t you just feel the danger and excitement? And, we are integral to economic recovery efforts in the Pikes Peak region.
We need instructors! If you have a skill that you would like to share with the community, we need you. We have the equipment and the students–share your talents through the Manitou Art Center.
Did you know that the MAC waived $20,000 in rent and distributed $15,000 in artist grants to support the local art community in 2020?
