MAC’s goal is to be a place where every artist feels welcome. Inspiring the kid in all of us.
Mini Art Center is founded on the idea that art can bring neighbors together. Inspired by the WPA community art centers, MAC’s accessible programs focus on the visual arts for all.
Mini Art Center is a low profit L3C fiscally-sponsored organization. We started as a pop-up at Propeller in the Broadmoor neighborhood in New Orleans. Holding Open Studio hours for children and their families once a month. As our audience grew, we set out to open our own space and found the perfect home in Algiers Point. Through Kickstarter and our amazing backers we were able to crowdfund what we needed to renovate and open our doors to the NOLA community in May of 2015. Since then we have offered a variety of visual arts programs and popped up at great events around the city.
In May of 2019 MAC will be closed our studio doors in Algiers Point.
Our goal moving forward is to transition MAC into a mobile pop up studio. Mobile MAC will host free family friendly programming and continue its mission of bringing neighbors together through art making. Look out for more information as we figure out our next chapter!
