The Gallery is open Friday – Sunday, 11am – 5pm

The Visual Arts became a central focus of the Morgan Arts Council once MAC acquired the Ice House in 1996. Developing gallery space in the building became a top priority after a yearlong visual arts festival in 1997; the Ice House Artists’ Co-op was established soon. Today, the Ice House is home to several gallery spaces. Arts education classes in the visual arts occur throughout the year, with programming available for all ages.
