About the MACC Lower Level Gallery

MACC Lower Level Gallery

In order to fulfill Marquette Arts and Culture Center’s mission of encouraging and facilitating an enriched environment of creative activity within the city, MACC has provided a visual arts gallery space within the art center in the lower level of Peter White Library.

Exhibitions are curated with consideration for quality of the exhibit, what will be of interest to the community locally, regionally or nationally and suitability of subject matter. Lake Superior Art Association sponsors six of the eleven yearly shows giving their many members an opportunity to display their artwork.

The other five shows are curated by a MACC's resident curator and are varied in media and subject matter. All shows are professionally hung. All displays that the art gallery exhibits are suitable for all ages and will not promote discrimination against any person or group.
