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
