Muskegon Center for the Arts Relocates to Century Block Building in Downtown Muskegon

The Muskegon Center for the Arts has a new creative space to call home! Now located in the lower level of the Century Block Building at 356 W. Western Avenue in downtown Muskegon, the new space allows for MCA’s plans for expansion.

“The Century Block Building is a historic building that is over 100-years-old,” said MCA Board Member Michael Schaafsma. “It is the perfect location for the MCA to promote its members artwork and offer the community creative opportunities.”

Future plans include an on-site photo studio available to members and groups for rent as well as space for MCA to host more classes and workshops, intimate stage and music events, and other events to engage the local community in participating in various creative events. MCA will continue to have their Red Lotus Gallery to promote member’s artwork.

Upcoming MCA events include a September show in the Red Lotus Gallery, which will be dedicated to an ‘all MCA members’ art show of new works. In October, the gallery will host the 2nd annual ‘The Muskegon Lake Project’ with a portion of the proceeds going to the Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership.
