The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery, named in honor of MACC President Emeritus Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson, was created as part of the remodel of the historic MACC Coliseum in 2002. The wing provides an updated and expanded space for Graphic Arts & Fine Arts programs, including lab space, classrooms, and studios. In addition to the local high school and MACC student shows, the Gallery hosts rotating exhibits throughout the year that feature the work of national and international artists. The Gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7AM to 8:30PM and on Friday from 7AM to 4PM.
