Kids' Days at the MAC and Summer Camp

Each month there will be a new activity or performance which will be appropriate for children of all ages. On May 13, Building Young Leaders Performing Arts will perform from 11 - 12 in the Arts Center. Their performance - "Treasures" - combines everything from hip-hop to ballet into an energetic and interactive performance that will entertain both children and adults.
For a complete schedule of the next four months of programs, visit the Arts Council's website, artsmerced.org and sign up to receive their newsletter.

For the series, the hands-on art activities are designed to have children drop in and participate. The performances will usually run from 11 to about 11:45. All the performances and hands-on art activities are free thanks to a grant from the Merced County Office of Education and supporters of the Merced County Arts Council. Before or after the activities families are encouraged to visit the Art Galleries in the Arts Center.

In April and May, the exhibit in the Main Gallery is "Landmark: Yosemite Through the Lens of Contemporary Landscape Photography." The exhibit celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service and is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to the Mariposa Arts Council. Merced is the second stop for the exhibit after being shown in Yosemite National Park this past winter and before being shown in Mariposa and then San Francisco. The exhibit in the Second Floor Galleries features a wide variety of art in various media by talented high school students from throughout Merced County.
