* MACC/PWPL 2018 Renovations

(It seems renovations will be done near the end of 2018.)

NOTICE: Peter White Public Library Renovation

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center (MACC) galleries and workshop spaces will be closed to the public during Library renovations beginning May 1, 2018.

The City Arts and Culture Office will temporarily relocate to the Peter White Conference Room on the Library’s main floor. Renovations will not disrupt the Office ongoing initiatives, support services, and programs such as Art Week and Halloween Spectacle. Staff may be reached during regular business hours, Monday-Friday 10 am-5 pm.

 In addition, Senior Arts programs will continue during renovations at the Marquette Senior Center located at 300 W. Baraga Avenue.

Renovations that directly impact MACC space include, improvements to atrium windows, sound proofing and private entrances into workshop rooms. Changes will greatly improve disruptions between spaces, acoustics, privacy, and security. New office will be located adjacent to the LSAA Gallery.

One of the most exciting changes is the creation of a reception/gathering area between the Children’s Library, Community Room, and the MACC. Patrons will be drawn down the stairs by a welcoming space filled with comfortable chairs and beautiful art. The new space will provide a welcoming place to meet up with a friend before visiting the art gallery, a quiet moment while your child participates in a library program, or a reception before a concert in the Community Room. The SmallWorks Gallery will be replaced by what promises to become a dynamic hub for all three spaces, showcasing the creative programming on the lower level.
