People are loving Monet Revisited and our staff!
Friendly attendant who took special care in wrapping a vase that, if not wrapped properly, could break. Liked the setup of the Robert Held display. Am a big fan of his work.

“World Class! Wow!”
“Exceptional, above-and-beyond anything here before in our little town!”
“I like the way the central benches evoke L’Orangerie in the Jardins des Tuileries in Paris. Also brings back memories of Giverny. Great vases, & imaginative use of glass to represent L’Orangerie, paintings circling room, Great Bridge in Centre”
“To sit, to listen, to feel. To sense the beauty of the world through the eyes of the artistic soul. That is Living!”
From an Exhibitor
Grant Leier, Nixie Barton and Paul Jorgensen exhibited at the MAC April 17 – June 2, 2018.
Our experience at MAC was wonderful, Jennifer was a dream to work with as was Cheryl, the Gift Shop Supervisor, who organized the food for the opening reception. Our return visits with clients was always met with professionalism and kindness, you have a very good thing going at the MAC, I would highly recommend your venue to anyone. Also, the three individuals who assisted with the installations were great too.
Best wishes for the success of your events, sincerely, Grant
