The

Mineral Area Council on the Arts

Story

Mineral Area Council on the Arts (MACOA) is an organization
of volunteers dedicated to providing quality professional arts programming
to local venues at an affordable price. The MACOA office is located
on the campus of Mineral Area College. The Council is a not-for-profit organization governed by an 18 member board representing 5 counties.

Founded in the 1980s by a steering committee developed by
former Mineral Area College President Dr. Dixie Kohn, MACOA presents
an annual performance series which includes a variety of artistic genres. 
Past performances have included the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra,
a classic film festival, Shakespeare in the Parkland,
the Fabulous Motown Revue, French Creole fiddler Dennis Stroughmatt,

Celebrate Local Authors, and a variety of lectures, exhibits,
concerts and plays featuring national and local artists and performers.

MACOA awards an annual Fine Arts scholarship to a Mineral Area College student. Applications are available in the Mineral Area College Financial
Aid Office. The Council also hosts the popular K-12 Student Art Show,
with 1370 pieces of local student artwork exhibited in 2013,

and brings children's programs to Parkland schools.
