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.

Faces are ubiquitous in art. They may be encountered in a piece of jewelry, a painting, a clay figure or a drawing. The word “face” can also have many meanings besides an individual’s actual face, such as a clock face, face the music, two-faced etc. Maybe you’ll even find your own face in this show!

Hall of Dreams Gallery
This special exhibit space debuted after the 2013 building renovation. Located in the first-floor lobby, the rotating exhibit highlights local art in an accessible, central location.
