MAC Center for the Arts celebrates ADA upgrades to facility

in Arts and Entertainment/Newport/News

NEWPORT — Recently, the MAC Center for the Arts underwent a major upgrade to become ADA compliant.

The facility added a handicap bathroom and changed the blueprint of the floor plan to accommodate wheelchair accessibility.

While the process was costly, they say the results are priceless.

The renovation began January 5 with a concerted effort on the part of the artists to deconstruct the venue of all artwork to allow the construction and overhaul to begin.

The two-week endeavor and redeveloped space greeted customers with a Grand Re-Opening on January 25.

During the entire month of February, a “RAFFLE” is being held to help continue the funding for more ADA upgrades.

Come see the new MAC or take part in the raffle by stopping in during winter hours, Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
