Phase 2 COVID Protocols at the MAC

The MAC has robust COVID-19 protocols to provide a safe and healthy art experience for all visitors to the Arts Centre.

All students and visitors are required to bring and wear a facemask while they are in the Studio, Gift Shop and Galleries, to practice social distancing, and to make use of the hand disinfectant provided.

If you are not feeling well, if you have travelled in the past 14 days, or if you have been with someone who has travelled in the past 14 days, please stay home at this time.

With Glowing Hearts Exhibit Callout

A Community Art Exhibit at the MAC

We invite anyone who wishes to create their own version of a heart image and help us fill our MAC entranceway with pieces of hope and joy, memories – perhaps memorials to precious souls – from you, our community members.

Bring your piece of ‘heart work’ to the MAC between 11 am and 3 pm to be added to this ongoing, permanent installation.
