The Maple Grove Arts Center (MGAC) is committed to supporting, nurturing, and displaying all the creative talents who live in Maple Grove. MGAC has space for artists to create, galleries to display the result of such productivity, and classes in theater, music, and writing. The center has 9 - 12 shows a year, and many of the professionals who visit provide classes as well. The artists they bring in (and nurture) are a diverse group, and they produce arts in media all over the spectrum. MGAC is very involved in the community, and they offer the Jacob Beneke Arts Scholarship each year to a graduating senior who will be studying art in college.
