We are presenting a virtual Sugar Creek Arts Festival beginning on Saturday, July 11 at 7:00 AM, with an elaborated website, streaming musical performances, and direct links to more than fifty participating artists' websites!

Due to the pandemic concerns, the McLean County Arts Center staff and board are sad to announce that we will be closed to the public for the time being. Classes to be starting in the new term will be rescheduled. In the meantime we are offering daily programs, most for free, on our facebook page, and on our website with our Stay Home Art Challenges.

Be safe, stay home, and make art!

Notice for Amateur Exhibition Artists:

Thank you for taking part in our 93rd Annual Amateur Exhibition! We're sorry that the show was impacted by the current health crisis, but we're thankful we were able to hold a successful awards ceremony and reception. A video walkthrough of the exhibition is available on our Facebook page and we encourage you to watch and share with your friends and family

The show was scheduled to come down on April 10th, however, our doors will be closed at least through the end of April in compliance with the current shelter in place order. Your safety and the safety of our community is our top priority.  Because of this, we cannot allow artists to pick up their work at this time. We are closely monitoring the situation and will be in touch with further instructions when circumstances allow us to reopen.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Watch for a new art challenge each day

There will be themed coloring activities, sculpture, collage, challenges and more!

Submissions are due the following day at 7:00 pm.

One prize will be awarded each day we have a contest! Open to all ages!

Submit completed works by email to info@mcac.org with the name and age of the artist.

All entries will be posted to Facebook and on our Stay Home Art Challenge web page.

There will be a daily Art Challenge winner announced each week!
