Home of the Arts

Supporting the arts has always been our mission. We host exhibitions, performances, classes, art and gift markets, and many other cultural activities. Supporting the arts in the West Central Illinois region enriches us all. We aim to continue to provide opportunities for performance and visual artists to have a place to network with their peers, hone their craft, and provide a venue to inspire others. But we can’t do it alone. Please consider becoming a member and help us keep serving our region. Thanks!

Macomb Arts Center enhances our region – and beyond – by providing a hub for area artists to engage with one another and share their talents with the community at large.

Call for Logo Design – Macomb Arts Center

The Macomb Arts Center (formerly the West Central Illinois Arts Center) has a new name, and is thus in need of a new logo.  Our logo would be used for website, letterhead, business cards, posters, etc.  Our new logo may also be used to inform the design of building signage (within historic district guidelines).

Please submit your proposed logo design(s) (with price bid) by June 30, 2019.  The MAC Board reserves the right to final selection of artist based on design proposal, and only the final selected artist will be paid.  Any artist submitting a proposal, once selected, must be willing to work with the MAC Board to fine-tune the submitted design to meet the Board’s specifications, and to sign a release of all rights of the design to the MAC.

Proposal, with bid, to be submitted to the Macomb Arts Center at 25 E. Side Square, Macomb, IL 61455 or to Executive Director Nancy Crossman at nancyjcrossman@gmail.com.
