Our March meeting has been moved to Thursday, March 16th. We hope you can all make it!
After hosting a create your own comic book class at the Art of Diabetes event this past November, the MAC finds itself celebrating this fantastic art form one more time. Several highly regarded comic book artists have generously donated artwork to the MAC that will be auctioned off to support arts programming within our community.
Artists Alan Davis, Bill Sienkiewicz, Tom Rainey, and Mike McKone have created original signed sketches of Batman, the Joker, the Hulk, and Wolverine. A selection of these pieces will be on display at the opening night reception of the 2017 Art Expo on May 5, 2017. Other works include signed Superman, Wonder Woman, the Justice League, and Game of Thrones prints. More information on these prints and pricing coming soon.

At the Manville Borough Council Reorganization meeting on January 7, 2017, Mayor Richard Onderko and the Manville Borough Council honored the Manville Arts Council with the Community Spirit Award. The MAC was recognized for their work during their first year, for providing "all residents the opportunity to explore art in their everyday lives by participating in programs or by enjoying art of local talent" and for bringing a sense of community spirit back to Manville thru the arts.
The Manville Arts Council is honored to receive this award. Thank you Mayor Onderko and the Manville Borough Council.
