The Marion Art Center (MAC), a not-for-profit organization, has been serving the community since 1957. Our mission is to promote the visual and performing arts.

The Marion Art Center is comprised of two galleries, a small theater, and a studio.

During Marion’s “Gilded Age” many famous writers and artists came to the area to share ideas and each others’ company. Richard Watson Gilder, Henry James, Charles Dana Gibson, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Stanford White, Ethel, John, and Lionel Barrymore, Richard Harding Davis and his wife Cecil Clark Davis were some of the talented people who enjoyed the ambiance of Marion and the waters of Sippican Harbor. The same spirit of creativity is alive and well today on the corner of Main and Pleasant Streets. The permanent collection of portraits by Cecil Clark Davis (American painter 1877-1955) are displayed on the theater walls.

The Center offers a full schedule of classes in art, music, dance, and theater arts year round to both children and adults. Private lessons in piano are available by appointment.
