About Us

Our Mission

“The Milford Arts Council shall support and foster artistic, cultural and educational opportunities for the benefit of the greater Milford community through the creation of environments and programs for artists to work and present; as well as encourage the promotion, development, acceptance and appreciation of the Arts.”

About Us

The Milford Arts Council (d.b.a. 2012) was founded in 1971 when a variety of clubs and groups came together for their 501(c)3 as the Milford Fine Arts Council. They originally met in the Mary Taylor building, now home to the Milford Chamber of Commerce. In 1984 the decision was made to find a more permanent home for the performances, exhibitions, classes and theater that were scattered throughout the city of Milford. The abandoned eastbound train station was selected and after years of fundraising and extensive renovations, the MAC opened the Milford Center for the Arts in 1995.

The MAC Center for the Arts is a beautifully restored civil war era building and is on the National Historic Register. It offers a black box stage with beautiful acoustics, intimate seating for up to 110 in theater or café configuration, a projection theater system with a 10X20’ drop screen, exhibition area, classroom, offices, kitchenette and concessions lobby.

Every year the MAC presents community theatre, live music concerts with international, regional and local talent, exhibitions, classes, workshops, films and lectures. Additionally, MAC partners with fellow non-profits for particular events highlighting their missions and messages to share with the public in a open environment for greater exposure. MAC offers support to our students through mini-grants, a yearly scholarship through the Chamber of Commerce and mentorship to further artistic exposure, experience and education. The MAC works hard in developing relationships with local businesses for sponsorship and investments guaranteeing our continued success and helping to keep our ticket prices affordable for our patrons.
