VOLUNTEER FOR GALLERY HOURS
The MCA is seeking volunteers for summer Gallery hours. In an effort to keep our doors open more frequently for public visitation, we are seeking any community volunteers interested in Gallery-sitting for a weekend shift. Responsibilities simply include unlocking the door and greeting anyone who comes to check out the space. There may be an art installation up or perhaps we will be between shows, but offering the public the opportunity to check out the building is important for our mission as a community space. Feel free to bring a book, small project, or remote work using our hi-speed wifi to pass you time, or simply sit and enjoy the sunshine on the front porch.

EXCITING NEWS FOR THE MCA
The MCA is thrilled to announce that we were selected as one of nine VT community projects to receive a reward from the VT Preservation Trust Paul Bruhn Grant.
"The Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants, named for PTV’s founding President, Paul Bruhn, was created in partnership with Senator Leahy and the National Park Service to help rural communities throughout the country."
We were awarded $50,000 to address exterior repairs, stripping, and repainting the building. This is an incredible opportunity to finance a much needed restoration for this wonderful building that is such a beacon of our Main Street.
Stay tuned for more information and updates as this exciting project gets underway!!!
