Artwork by Courtney Miller Bellairs in the MRAC Conference Room

MRAC Exhibition Space

A new initiative brings art from MRAC applicant groups to the MRAC conference room and office space for the enjoyment of all who congregate in these spaces. These three month exhibitions show the talents and artistic visions of arts groups from around the 7 county metro area. The summer 2017 exhibition features work by Arts Consortium of Carver County member artist Courtney Miller Bellairs.

Figures in Space: oil, watercolor, collage
This colorful exhibition features oil paintings, collages, and watercolors highlighting the human form and the ways light interacts with architecture.

The show is on view Monday-Friday, 9 am-5 pm, through August 31, but it is recommended that you verify the space is available before visiting by calling 651.645.0402 or emailing

Opening Reception is scheduled for Thursday, June 15 from 7-9 pm. Everyone is welcome to stop by and see the exhibition and talk with the artist. 


Biennial Plan for FY18 and FY19

As part of our relationship with the Minnesota State Arts Board, MRAC is obliged to share our FY18 and FY19 Biennial plan with our constituents. MRAC board and staff worked on this plan over the course of six months and input from constituents came in the form of focus groups, interviews, and a survey to all applicants who have submitted proposals to MRAC in the past three years. 

MRAC looks forward to implementing the work towards these three goals and serving artists and arts groups across the 7-county Metro area in the next two years.
