Madera County Arts Council has been a partner  with the California Arts Council since 1982, through the State-Local Partnership Program.  We are a private, community-benefit [non-profit, 501(c)3] organization working to support and promote all arts in Madera County.


MCAC draws from the expertise of many local and regional partnerships and sixteen directors to create the necessary links between the Arts and community development.
