Welcome October!
As we move into Fall, we reflect on our very full and active 2018. MCA serves many hundreds of children and adults in education and expression in the visual and performing arts. It also entertains several hundreds more each year through its free community arts programming with Munroe Saturday Nights or events such as ArtsOffroad (recent event along the bikeway) and special workshops.

As we head into our annual appeal, please think about the ways you have benefited from what we do here and consider making an end-of-year donation to support what we do and help us to grow and thrive. More information about our FY18 progress and FY2019 goals can be found online here.

Transportation Survey
