MAC offers many programs that create opportunities for visual and performing artists, arts organizations, arts educators, and arts enthusiasts throughout Greenville County. These programs enhance the quality of life of all Greenville residents and visitors.
Downtown Alive kicks off the weekend every Thursday evening with music at NOMA Square. The event runs from March – August with all drink proceeds benefiting MAC. We host the Arts Tent each week for local artists and arts organizations to sell their work or promote their programs.
Flat Out Under Pressure is MAC’s unique program involving visual arts and sound environmental practices in downtown Greenville. Each summer artists come together for a 24-hour art making event. The winners have the opportunity to have their artwork displayed on one of the 8 recycling bins that line Main Street.
SmartARTS is a partnership between Greenville County Schools and the Metropolitan Arts Council that connects students, artists and teachers to deeper learning and self-awareness through integrating the arts with all areas of education.
